Rugby 7’s is one of the sport competed in the Olympics. Rugby 7’s is a sport that is made up of seven players playing seven-minute halves, instead of the usual 15 players playing 40-minute halves. Each team is only allowed five reserves per game, and they’re permitted to make five substitutions. Unlike in 15s, a player can re-enter the match after he or she has been subbed out. These rule changes were brought in to keep the game fast-moving and free-flowing, which is considered the aim of sevens rugby.
There will be 2 events for the 29th SEA Games, which are rugby 7s for both women and men’s team.
