6:37 am on 27 June 2012

The International Rugby Board has announced the further expansion of the Sevens World Series, with Argentina joining as a 10th venue for the 2012/13 Series.

Argentina's addition to the list of global hot spots signals the return of the series to South America for the first time since 2002.

It also means that every continent now hosts at least one round of the Sevens World Series.

The inaugural IRB Women's Sevens Series kicks off next year, and Sevens will make its Olympic Games debut in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
