The HSBC World Rugby 7s Series 2022 comprises nine men’s and six women’s rounds. This year's calendar has taken us to many of the usual stopovers plus three new cities (Malaga, Seville and Toulouse replace traditional hosts Australia and New Zealand).

So far, we've been treated to some stunning displays. On the men's side, defending champions South Africa blew away the competition early doors, but after a poor showing in Toulouse last week, have dropped to second in the table. Can new leaders Argentina extend their two point lead at Twickers? Or will South African return to the top?

After the London Sevens is done and dusted, it's onto the final leg of the competition in sunny Los Angeles (27-28 August).

Rugby fans in the US can watch free with a Peacock 7-day trial (opens in new tab) but make sure you know how to get a free World Rugby Sevens live stream from where you are.

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant World Rugby Sevens rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) which offers a 100 percent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
