Under 14s side Teddington and the local u15s team Bristol Community Clifton won the Cup at the second SW7s Development Cup on the final day of the SW7s Sports Festival in Bristol.
Staged at the home of Cleve RFC in Emerson’s Green a record number of 24 teams competed on a glorious and sunny day for the trophies. For the first time, the tournament was played under the new RFU X Rugby 7s rules.
X Rugby 7s was introduced this year and is a modified version of the traditional 7s rugby, which aims to encourage new players to try the sport. Played on a half-pitch size, with tacklings only allowed below the armpits and no high kicks, this format inspires to pass the ball a lot more to succeed.
