2014–15 Sevens World Series Live

The 2014–15 Sevens World Series, known for sponsorship reasons as the HSBC Sevens World Series, is the 16th annual series of rugby union sevens tournaments for national rugby sevens teams. The Sevens World Series has been run by World Rugby since 1999–2000. This series also, for the first time, doubles as a qualifier for the 2016 Summer Olympics, with the top four countries qualifying automatically.

Core teams:

For each season, there are 15 core teams that receive guaranteed berths in all events for that season’s series. These teams finished in the Top 14 of the standings in the 2013–14 series. In addition to the Top 14, Japan joined the core teams as they were the winners of the qualifying tournament during the 2014 Hong Kong Sevens. Spain, being the last placed core team for 2013–14, was relegated and lost their status as a core team for the 2014–15 season.
