By Nazvi Careem

The gambling capital of the United States hosts this weekend’s latest tournament on the HSBC World Sevens Series. The Las Vegas Sevens is one of the most popular stops on the tour and players are looking forward to the tournament and the atmosphere generated by the American crowd.

World Rugby has put together a short video with highlights from last year’s tournament when the USA Sevens Eagles delighted their home fans by taking the title.

This will be the 16th straight year a sevens tournament will be held in the United States, with South Africa holding the record for most wins with four. Fiji have taken three titles while New Zealand have won it twice.

The first winners, in 2004, were Argentina, who repeated in 2009. Samoa also have two victories while England took out the 2006 tournament.
