    Australia’s next generation of Sevens stars will head to Ballymore this weekend with three separate Championships being conducted in the Senior Men’s Sevens as well as the Youth Boys and Youth Girls Sevens tournaments.

    The National Sevens Championships has seen the likes of Tim Anstee, Lachlan Anderson, Demi Hayes, Emma Sykes, Maurice Longbottom and Dominique Du Toit progress onto higher honours and provides an invaluable opportunity for Australian selectors to find their next generation of development players.

    Several of last year’s competitors continued on to play in the Aon University Sevens Series, with the likes of Sariah Paki, Jakiya Whitfield and Hagiga Mosby graduating into the victorious Australian Women’s Sevens side during the 2018 Oceania Sevens Championships.

    Queensland will be a force to be reckoned with on their home soil, hosting three teams in both the youth girls and boys pools. Queensland will also have two teams in the Senior Men’s Championship, who will be at full strength off the back of the inaugural Queensland Premier Rugby Sevens series.

    Rugby Australia’s Performance Manager Sevens Rugby, Scott Bowen said: “The level of talent that we can and have discovered at these tournaments is always outstanding, with many of the players going into our academies and talent pathway.

    “The youth tournaments always throw up players who have gone onto become some of our most consistent performers on the world series.

    “In the senior men’s competition this year we will also see a lot of our nationally contracted players, who missed out on Dubai and are returning to their states to get essential game time.”

    With free entry across all three days at Ballymore, the public is invited to attend and show their support for the future stars of Australian Rugby Sevens.

    It will be interesting to see how the Qld mens perform after the Premier 7s series. Without putting the mockers on them, I expect them to do well.

    Queenslanders rule the sevens for the 3rd straight year. The final to me was the night priors semi between QLD red and QLD grey, with red winning 24 - 21.

    Prem 7s definitely paying dividends.
