The second of three rounds in this year’s Asia Rugby Sevens Series in Korea will be streamed live on Asia Rugby’s Facebook page.
With both the men’s and women’s competitions continuing this weekend in Korea after a two week break, there is a buzz around the sport following the recent Asian Games where Japan women and Hong Kong men made history, and round one in Hong Kong where Japan struck gold twice.
There are three rounds in both competitions this year which will culminate in Sri Lanka on 13-14 October.
All matches will be available online with fans able to tune in on Facebook to watch as eight men’s and eight women’s teams compete for the title this weekend.
Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, China, Japan and Korea will compete in both competitions while Kazakhstan, Singapore and Thailand make up the women’s eight and the Philippines, Chinese Taipei and Malaysia complete the line up for the men.
Japan women won both of the two women’s events in 2017 to win the overall title and have already got off to a flying start beating China in the Hong Kong final.
With Japan beating Asian Games gold medalists Hong Kong in the men’s competition, it was Sri Lanka who claimed third ahead of the Philippines.
This year for the women’s competition the series will have extra meaning as the highest ranked side except for China will qualify to compete in the Kitakyushu Sevens.
Additionally, the three highest ranked sides except for China will get a chance to qualify for the World Rugby Women’s Series in the Hong Kong qualifier.
This weekend’s tournament in Korea begins with Asian Games bronze medallists Kazakhstan taking on Thailand at 11:30 local time in the women’s competition. The first men’s game sees the Philippines play China at 12:58.
