Georgian sevens team will participate in RWC Sevens 2013 to be played in Moscow, Russia.

At the RWC Sevens Qualifier in Algarve, Portugal, our team won the 4th place, which qualified them for the World Cup.

In the semifinal we lost against the host nation – Portugal 12:19, and in the 3rd place final France avenged for its pool-stage loss – 24:12.
