2012 and beyond for Australia Sevens
The Australian Sevens team are known for finishing the season strongly. This seems to be because they start with a new crop of players every season and it takes time to build them into a competitive unit as they learn on the job. The Sevens are very much a feeder operation into the 15 man game and it will be interesting to see if this changes before the 2016 Olympics when Sevens enters. Maybe the Australian RFU will look to build both a strong Sevens ethos and work it alongside their 15’s squad. Their problem will still possibly be a small player pool to choose from. Whatever happens they will continue to be competitive at Sevens.
