The University of Essex is hosting it's second annual Rugby Sevens festival on the 17th March and due to some dropouts outs (snow day fixtures postponed), they are now looking for 1 x Women's 7s team and 2 x Men's 7's team.
The festival will feature a men’s, women’s and a social x Rugby 7s tournament. X Rugby 7s is a new form of the game, it is half pitch 7s with full (below the armpit) contact. The rules are similar to sevens, although offloads and fast pace is encouraged! There are no conversions, but a max zone for extra points.
This is a social tournament and inexperience is welcomed. There will be social activities at the Students’ Union in the evening if you want to stay over. If you are wishing to stay in Colchester that weekend, please let us know when you return the invite and we will assist you in booking hotels.
