The team has been placed in Pool D alongside Kenya 7s, Australia and Uganda Cranes sevens. The Jamaican squad has 13 players included.

Men’s Rugby 7s has been played at every Commonwealth Games since Kuala Lumpur 1998, with a women’s event played for the first time at Gold Coast 2018. It is a core sport on the programme, meaning that it will be played at all future Games.
New Zealand won every single Commonwealth Games men’s Rugby 7s tournament until losing in the final to South Africa at Glasgow 2014. However, they regained their title at Gold Coast 2018, with the New Zealand women’s team making it a unique double.
