There are a total of 12 players in a Rugby (union) sevens Team, with seven on the pitch at any one time and 5 as reserves. The squad numbers are variable as in the 15 a side version. Squad sizes are down to the RFU of the country playing. They may ONLY name 12 for a game from the squad.

With 7 on the pitch and the correct number of subs (5) you could have 7 teams.

In the national football league what does practice squad deletion mean?

In the NFL, the teams are allowed to have 53 players on their roster. Of these 53 players, 45 are allowed to dress for a game. The players on the roster that don't dress for a game are considered to be on the 'practice squad'. Should a team decide to cut one of those players on the practice squad, it is called a 'practice squad deletion'. In the same vain, if a team picks up a player and adds him to the practice squad it is called a 'practice squad addition'.

It depends on how many players the coaches want. If they want alot of subs then they can have alot of players. if they didn't want alot of subs then they won't have alot of players on the team. If you are playing with 12 players they don't want over 50 subs do they? i don't think so.
