2004 Possibles vs Probables Tournament
The 2004 Forum Sevens Possibles v Probables (PVP) tournament is made up of 8 teams: 4 newcomer teams (Possibles) who will face off against 4 current teams (Probables).
The PVP is effectively a series of trial matches before the 2005 season kicks off.

The idea behind the PVP is to give teams an opportunity to show that they can field a full team and play at a level where they can compete in the full Forum Sevens competition of 2005.
The PVP also allows for new referees to gain experience prior to the 2005 season.

Win lose or draw, the PVP teams with the best organisation will be considered when the invitations for the 2005 Forum Sevens competition are issued, early in the New Year.

For the F7s Rules
Winning the PVP is not the main criteria, although ii obviously helps.

The PVP tournament is designed so that each team gets a minimum of two matches.

The tournament will run for a minimum of three rounds and will start with four games: ‘Possibles’ verses Probables’. Teams were drawn from two boxes: one team at a time from each box.

Winners of round 1 advance to round 2, and the Shield Semi Final.
Losers of round 1 advance to round 2, and the Plate Semi Final.

Losers in round 2 are eliminated from the tournament. (Please note that this does not necessarily mean no invitation will be issued to join the F7s).

Winners in round 2 advance to their respective Shield and Plate Finals.

There is the option for the undefeated Shield winners to accept a challenge from the Plate winners (who lost one match in round 1). If the challenge is issued and the Shield winners accept, both these teams will play off in a PVP CUP FINAL at a date which is agreeable to both captains.

The newcomers (possibles):
South Florida Bulls; Canberra Raiders; NZ Warriors; Glebe Dirty Reds
