London Rugby Sevens †
THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 17TH MAY 2015
Head down to the home of English rugby this May as Twickenham opens its doors to some of the world's finest rugby talent from 16 international teams for the London Sevens. The two-day tournament is a great chance to experience a sport whose popularity is growing fast. Sevens is quicker and higher-scoring than Union or League rugby (think Twenty20 cricket) and the rules are far simpler, which explains part of its appeal. It also gives players the space for superb feats of individual skill, with the athletic Samoan, Fijian and New Zealand teams particularly prone to spectacular showboating. There are plenty of well-timed breaks so you can hit the bar for some liquid refreshment and soak up some of the extra entertainment. It's also much cheaper than the 15-a-side version, which is always a bonus, and there's a distinctive carnival atmosphere to these events with spectators often sporting a superb array of comedy fancy dress outfits.
