Australia’s champion Women’s Sevens side have been rewarded for their strong 2021-22 World Rugby Sevens Series as they dominated awards night.
Australia entered the final event of the Series in Toulouse unable to be caught in the standings, finishing 20 points ahead of nearest rival France.
Whilst they were unable to secure their sixth title of the eight-leg event, falling to New Zealand in the Final, they were rewarded for their prolonged dominance with four players named in the World Rugby Dream Team.
This is led by co-captain Charlotte Caslick, who finished as the DHL Impact Player of the Year.
Caslick finished the tournament with 85 tackles, 27 breaks, 38 offloads and 159 carries, putting her 75 points ahead of nearest rival Lucy Mulhall.

Nathan finished third in the try-scorers rankings behind Caslick and Irish sensation Amee-Leigh Murphy Crowe, who was also included in the team.
Meanwhile, Ashby was a workhorse throughout the Series, finishing third for tackles and seventh on the Impact Player standings.
The Australian quartet was rounded out by Maddison Levi, who was also named Rookie of the Year.
Levi beat out teammate Alysia Lefau-Fakaosilea for the honour, ending the year with an incredible 24 tries.
