Hong Kong Sevens

The Hong Kong Sevens is widely regarded as the premier tournament on the World Sevens Series in Rugby Union. It is held annually in Hong Kong, around Easter.

Established in 1976, it originally was contested by teams in the Asian-Pacific region. Since the late 1980s the tournament has featured 24 teams from all over the world.

One of the enduring traditions in the tournament is the ritualistic booing of the Australian team.
