Rosslyn Park London Floodlit 7s Tournament
Thu 4 May 2017, 17:00 – 23:30 BST
Since its beginning in 1975 the Rosslyn Park London Floodlit 7s tournament has been a great way to end a long 15s season. An evening of high class rugby including sides from the Premiership, Championship, national leagues and top level universities all competing against each other. In past years it's not just been the team names but the players themselves that have attracted the crowds with the Premiership teams bringing along the likes of England's Danny Care, Ugo Monye, Chris Robshaw, James Haskell, to name a few.
It's a date circled on many 7s fans calendars each year, a chance to see some of the big clubs strutting their stuff on the 7s field, including Harlequins, Saracens, Leicester, Bath and Wasps from the Aviva Premiership. The tournament has often featured not only up-and-coming Premiership players, but also well-known faces from both the Premiership and International field.
Matches kick off at 5pm, with the 12 sides split into 4 groups of 3 with each of the group winners progressing to the semi-finals. With the final played under lights at 10.20pm, it's an evening of serious rugby 7s played in great spirits.
