IRB Sevens World Series

The 2012 USA Sevens tournament was the first time Brazil had competed in a World Series event since 2002. Brazil had a disappointing tournament, finishing 0-5. Brazil will be hoping to use the 2012 USA Sevens as a platform to continue to develop and grow Sevens.[1] Brazil fielded the least experienced team in the tournament, with Daniel Hubert Gregg the only Brazilian player with prior World Series experience.[2]
