Unlike rugby fifteens, where a player's number corresponds to his position, numbering in rugby sevens is more flexible.

In a squad of twelve players, the players will be numbered one through twelve. The starting players can have any of the twelve numbers, not necessarily one through sevens.

No set numbers differentiate positions; for example, numbers one through three are not reserved for forwards, but can be worn by any squad player.

In open play, a typical defensive formation involves a line of six defenders, with one sweeper behind the line.

Rugby sevens tends to be played at a faster pace than rugby fifteens. Because of the faster nature of the game, sevens players are often backs or loose forwards in fifteens rugby.

The differences are most notable on game restarts. Because scrums in sevens involve three players forming one row instead of eight players forming three rows, scrums tend to assemble more quickly, require fewer restarts, and the ball exits the scrum more quickly.

The first-ever sevens match was played at The Greenyards , the Melrose ground, where it was well received. Two years later, Tynedale was the first non-Scottish club to win one of the Borders Sevens titles at Gala in Despite sevens' popularity in the Borders, it did not catch on elsewhere until the s and s.

By , the Hong Kong Sevens were held up as a positive example to others, although many of the smaller nations' teams were largely made up of expatriates.

Rugby sevens continues to be popular in the Scottish Borders , where the ten most prestigious tournaments make up a league competition known as the "Radio Borders Kings of the Sevens". Sevens has also taken strong root in the Pacific island nations of Fiji , Tonga , and Samoa , as well as in Kenya.

In many minor rugby nations, such as in Poland , development has tended to concentrate on rugby sevens as a means of introducing the sport to people.

In addition, seven of the 15 current "core teams" that compete in all legs of the World Series represent nations that are not within the recognised top tier of the man game — Fiji , Samoa , Kenya , the United States , Canada , Portugal , and Japan.

Two issues related to differences between the structures of rugby union and the Olympics were sorted out before the Olympic Games. The issue of a combined British team has proven less of a problem in rugby union.

World Rugby chief executive Mike Miller endorsed the concept of a combined British sevens team in for the Olympics and beyond. By contrast, the International Olympic Committee recognises the British Olympic Association as the governing body of the UK Olympic team, while the Olympic Council of Ireland usually fields teams representing all of Ireland in sports which are organised on an all-Ireland basis.

Northern Irish sevens players play for the Irish team. In the men's competition Fiji won the gold medal in the sport's Olympic debut, with Great Britain taking the silver and South Africa the bronze.

The women's gold medal was won by Australia, with New Zealand taking silver and Canada bronze. The Rugby World Cup Sevens is held every four years and is the premier international rugby sevens tournament outside of the Olympic Games.

WR also successfully pushed for the inclusion of women's sevens in the Commonwealth Games. As sevens has proven a commercial and competitive success, sevens is starting to become divorced from the man game.

Former Wales rugby union player and current pundit John Taylor writes in , stating:. That is happening less and less. Players have to make a choice: Do they want to concentrate on Sevens or 15s?

The techniques and training required are becoming very different. Modern professional players are already pretty lean but the forwards in a-side do need bulk as well.

In Sevens that is not required and new training regimes are making body fat levels even lower so they are not able to transfer from one game to the other.
