After a two-week break, following on from the SW7s Festival, the Bamboos are back on track in order to compete at the Frome 7s tournament in Somerset this weekend.
Since its launch in 2013, the tournament has developed into one of the biggest and most important 7s events in the region. Hosted by the Frome Rugby Club, this weekend welcomes more than 50 teams are competing at four different levels. With a Super-Social, Social, Open and a strong Women’s competition, the Frome 7s is the right place for players and teams with all sort of standards and capabilities.
The club’s facilities are among the best in the region, with one of the best Clubhouses boasting sixteen changing rooms, five pitches, three bars, hospitality tents, and a huge balcony overlooking the main pitch so you won't miss any of the action.
Our women’s team, which just qualified for the 24/Sevens regional final in Exeter, will play the brand-new women’s team of the Olrun Ponty Butchers, as well as the team from Exeter University and local rivals Bath Ladies RFC. The team, coached by Lewis Pratten, will aim to keep the momentum going after two final appearances in the last two tournaments and are eager to repeat the recent success.
The men’s team has been drawn in a pool with last year’s champions Ponty Butcher’s from Wales and the Karuta Turtles from Taunton, two familiar sides which we played on a few occasions before. In addition, the North Dorset All Stars complement a tough Group A.
Following a few changes on the team sheets, both teams will travel with a full squad to Frome this Saturday. You can follow all live updates and results from Frome on our Twitter account (@7bamboosrugby).
