Pools for the Commonwealth Rugby 7s games have been released with teams set to converge in Coventry from 29 July 2022 for a three-day battle for Gold at the Coventry stadium.

The tournament was originally scheduled to take place at Villa Park, but it will instead take place at the Coventry Stadium in Coventry.  16 teams will feature in the men’s tournament at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

The 16 include the host nation and top nine nations in combined standings from the 2018–19 and 2019–20 World Rugby Sevens Series. The rest of the slots were reserved for regional qualification.

Kenya 7s are in Pool D and will renew rivalry with Uganda 7s who beat them in  Rugby Africa Men’s 7s held in April 2022 to qualify for Rugby World Cup and this commonwealth tournament. The Pool also has London 7s champions Australia who claimed their first Series gold medal since 2018 with a golden point victory over the All Blacks Sevens.

Pool C has Olympics Champions Fiji who will be eyeing another Gold.  Canada, Wales and Zambia are also in the Pool.

South Africa, Scotland, Tonga and Malaysia form pool B while 2018 Gold Medal winners New Zealand, England, Samoa and Sri Lanka are in Pool A.

Participation in the Games is limited to member states of the Commonwealth of Nations and their territories.
