THE exploding worldwide popularity of women’s Sevens has prompted Rugby Australia to launch a new nationwide recruitment campaign, offering full-time professional contracts as well as the chance to chase Olympic gold, to try and lure some of the best athletes away from other sports.

Rugby Australia is planning to target the top women’s players in rugby league and AFL as well as track and field sprinters to build a superstar team that can win gold at next year’s Tokyo Olympics.

If their match schedule increases as expected they may double that = 24 players at the most.
