The Brunei national rugby union sevens team is the rugby sevens side for Bruneian rugby union players. They currently compete in the IRB Asian Sevens Series.

They are traditionally seen as "minnows" . For example in the 1989 Hong Kong Sevens, they lost 52-0 to Australia,[1] who managed to score nine tries against them.[2] Results have improved gradually since then culminating in victories over Laos [3] and Indonesia [4] during the inaugural IRB Asian Sevens Series in 2009.
