In 2018 UQ has entered Men’s and Women’s teams in a number of tournaments around Brisbane, South East Queensland and New South Wales.
The Men’s program is spear headed by former Australia 7’s player Andrew Brown and the Women’s team is run by Reg Tayler. The coaches together with the help of the devoted manager Craig Winship put together a program that is professional, educational and enjoyable.

- Aussie 7s – Jonno Lance, Luke Morahan, Tevita Kuridrani, Con Foley, Nick Malouf, Conor Mitchell and Tate McDermott

The program also produced a number of Queensland representatives at the 2017 National Championship:
