Welcome to Hughenden Rugby Sevens!
This is an annual competition open to all communities wanting to compete in a social Rugby Union competition in Hughenden, North Queensland. Get together a group of mates and road trip to Hughenden for a action packed weekend of Rugby & Parties. No experience is required, just people willing to have a bit of fun and a trophy for one lucky team. Let’s get a bit of healthy rivalry happening between our communities.
