History

At the 1999 South Pacific Games held in Guam, Vanuatu won its second rugby Bronze medal, defeating Solomon Islands in the rugby 7's. The first Bronze had been won for the rugby 15's in 1966, as New Hebrides.[1]

In the 2000 Telecom Oceania Sevens held in Rarotonga, Vanuatu went on to beat Tahiti 31-0 to win the Bowl. The tournament was a qualifier for the 2001 Rugby World Cup Sevens and the last World Cup place was taken by the Cook Islands, who won the Oceania Sevens Cup.

At the 2011 Pacific Games, Vanuatu finished in 9th place, defeating Tahiti 7 - 17.
