World Rugby's Sevens circuit starts in Dubai on 1 December 2017 and ends in London on 2 June 2018.

Nine referees have been appointed to each tournament. Rasta Rasivhenge and Richard Kelly are senior citizens but there are many new faces.

Amongst them is Richard Haughton who, in his playing days, played for England on the Sevens circuit.

Waikato Stadium in Hamilton is the new New Zealand venue, taking over from Wellington where crowd support was poor.

Included in the appointments are those for the Commonwealth Games next April.
