2019 Sydney 7s Placing: 7th

Russia will be looking for improved performances in comparison to last year's results. Finishing 7th overall last year, the Russians will come into this tournament looking to prove a point, hopefully achieving a few upsets along the way. Star player Alena Mikhaltsova is one 7s player to watch out for in Sydney, after being named DHL Impact Player of the Year, clocking up some impressive statistic during the 2019 circuit.
