The fifth annual HSBC Canada Women’s Sevens Tournament week has arrived!
- Canada’s Women’s Sevens Team is fresh off their Gold Medal performance at the last tournament in Kitakyushu, Japan.
- Canada currently sits in 2ndplace on the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series with two tournaments to go – Langford, May 11-12 and Biarritz, France on June 15-16
- The top four nations at the end of the series automatically qualify for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. Canada (2ndplace) is currently 20 points ahead of France (5th place) and has an excellent chance of officially qualifying with a strong performance this weekend.
