The 2012 London Sevens was the sixth edition of the tournament and the ninth tournament of the 2011-12 IRB Sevens World Series. The host stadium was the Twickenham Stadium.

Fiji won the title by defeating Samoa 38–15 in the final.[1]

Format Edit

The teams were divided into pools of four teams, who played a round-robin within the pool. Points were awarded in each pool on a different schedule from most rugby tournaments—3 for a win, 2 for a draw, 1 for a loss. The top two teams in each pool advanced to the Cup competition. The four quarterfinal losers dropped into the bracket for the Plate. The Bowl was contested by the third- and fourth-place finishers in each pool, with the losers in the Bowl quarterfinals dropping into the bracket for the Shield.

Teams Edit

The following teams participated.[2]
