The Adelaide Sevens (also known as Australia Sevens) is a rugby union sevens tournament, part of the 2009-10 IRB Sevens World Series. The competition was held at the Adelaide Oval, South Australia between 19 March and 21 March.

Samoa picked up their second consecutive Cup win, following their victory in the USA Sevens. In a major surprise, their opponent in the final was the USA, who advanced to their first-ever Cup final. Samoa's 38–10 win enabled them to narrow the gap between them and current series leaders New Zealand to 2 points.

New Zealand, who were knocked out of the Cup competition by Samoa, gained the consolation prize of the Plate, defeating reigning series champions South Africa in the final. The Bowl was won by England and the Shield by Japan.

FormatEdit

The tournament, as in all 16-team IRB Sevens events, consisted of four round-robin pools of four teams. All sixteen teams progressed to the knockout stage. The top two teams from each group progressed to quarter-finals in the main competition, with the winners of those quarter-finals competing in cup semi-finals and the losers competing in plate semi-finals. The bottom two teams from each group progressed to quarter-finals in the consolation competition, with the winners of those quarter-finals competing in bowl semi-finals and the losers competing in shield semi-finals.
