Sevens Social - Get involved with #USA7s
In the third 'Sevens Social' of the 2012/13 HSBC Sevens World Series we look back to some of the highlights from the Hertz Sevens Sevens and tell you how to get involved with this weekend’s USA Sevens from the Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas.
Despite losing in sudden death extra time to England in the Cup final of the 2013 Hertz Sevens, Kenya's performance across the two days in Wellington was the most talked about aspect of the tournament on our social networking platforms.
The hashtag #Kenya7s was used more than 12,000 times on Twitter during day two of the tournament which resulted in it becoming the second trend worldwide, with the tournament-official hashtag (#NZ7s) at number seven during the Cup final.

This weekend you can use #USA7s to have your say, like our Facebook page, which has grown to over 106,000 fans, or tweet @irbsevens, and your comment could appear in the live-blog we will be providing from the tournament in Las Vegas, as Jon Hughes did in Wellington.
"Can there be a more exciting and entertaining spectator sport to watch than @IRBSevens? Loved every minute of #NZ7s," tweeted Hughes after the final whistle at the Westpac Stadium.
If you missed any of the action from Wellington, or want to catch up on the best bits ahead of and after this weekend's tournament, we will be providing the usual preview and highlights videos on our YouTube channel.
You will also be given the chance to vote for your favourite try from the USA Sevens, as you did in New Zealand, with 40% of you voting for Sean Duke's try against South Africa as the winner.
