The 2012 South Africa Sevens was the ninth edition of the tournament and the third tournament of the 2012–13 IRB Sevens World Series.

Flag of New Zealand.png New Zealand defeated France 47–12 in the final to win the title.[1]

FormatEdit

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.
