Sydney University made the Gold Medal match for the first time since they joined the Aon University Sevens this year and proved they have become a strong force to contend with in their second-place finish.

Finishing in third place was Macquarie University who concluded the weekend with the bronze medal after accounting for the University of Queensland, 24-0, leaving Macquarie University hope of claiming the Aon University Sevens Series.

In other matches, the University of New England enjoyed an undefeated day two, finishing in fifth place after defeating the University of Adelaide 35-17.
