Captains create street art ahead of HSBC SVNS in Los Angeles

"VAN" (Sports Desk - 29.02.2024) :: Los Angeles is set to welcome the world’s best 12 men’s and - for the first time ever - the 12 women’s rugby sevens teams to Dignity Health Sports Park on 1-3 March for the fifth round of HSBC SVNS 2024.

Fans attending the revamped HSBC SVNS, which sees men’s and women’s teams compete equally across eight iconic destinations, will be treated to a festival of world class sport, music, entertainment, culture and cuisine as the global celebration of rugby sevens lands in La La Land.

The 2028 Olympic host city will witness the speed, strength and incredible skill of many of the players and teams who will showcase the all action drama of rugby sevens at the 2024 Games in Paris in July.

Following last weekend’s fourth round in Vancouver the race to be crowned SVNS league champions at the seventh event in Singapore is hotting up.

Argentina are the men’s team to beat, holding a 24 point lead having claimed three gold and one silver medals from the opening four rounds. Argentina have 78 points, ahead of Ireland and Fiji on 54 points.

Australia maintain their position at the top of the women’s standings with 72 points but see their lead cut to six points by New Zealand in second on 66 points and France a further four points behind on 62 points.
