London 7s May 2016

What a great finale we had for the 2015/16 HSBC Seven’s Series in London last weekend.

Scotland managed to take their first title scoring twice in the last 90 seconds of the final against South Africa. Player of the final Dougie Fife getting both vital scores.

 

At 10 venues on the Series this year there have been 6 different winners, Fiji, South Africa, New Zealand, Kenya, Samoa & Scotland. Add Australia, USA, France and Argentina and realistically you could have one of 9 or 10 potential Olympic Gold medalists later in the summer.

It bodes well for the growth and popularity of Rugby 7’s in the future.

 

The weekend itself was great fun; the coaching clinic is always a highlight. Here is some footage of it in action

My team Harrow’s dominating performance yesterday over Cranleigh still has me smiling.

A massive well done and thank to all involved in the HSBC Sevens Series 15/16.
