On February 25 and 26, 2022/23, the Rugby World Seven Series will visit Los Angeles, California, in the United States, for the next men’s rugby 7s competition round.
The current leaders in the standings, New Zealand, are getting better with each competition, but they are missing five stars for this stop, so it will be difficult for them to continue the form that allowed them to win in Sydney.
A door of opportunity has consequently been opened for the rejuvenated South African team, who regained some of their forms to finish in second place in Australia and are now only nine points behind the winners in the standings for second place.
Samoa is another squad to keep an eye on because of the improvement they have shown in their consistency this season. Fiji, who has won both the Olympic and World Cup titles, will also be a formidable opponent because of their improved third-place finish in their most recent competition.
Dietrich Roache, the playmaker for Australia, continues to be one of the most dangerous attacking players, even though the reigning series champions have had difficulty maintaining consistency this season. Roache’s 161 points earned this season put him in second place overall in the standings.
Flyer for the All Blacks Sevens team Akuila Rokolisoa is currently in first place, and he is someone you should definitely keep a watch out for. On the other hand, Fiji’s Manueli Maisamoa, who leads the offloads charts with 29, is sure to provide another creative masterclass.
Travis Ismaiel, a veteran attacker who plays in the 15s competition, will be available to provide South Africa’s Blitzbokke with the firepower they need.
