21.03.2014 - HSBC Sevens World Series: Tokyo Sevens
It has been a while since the last stop of the HSBC Sevens Series, but this weekend the 16 teams travel Far East to compete yet again in Japan.
The tournament will be a great opportunity for the hosts to prove recent progress of the ambitious Japanese rugby development. They will face South Africa, Argentina and Kenya in a tough Pool B. The favourites of this pool, South Africa, are just two points behind series leaders New Zealand. The BlitzBokke are defending the title in Tokyo this weekend and a successful trophy re-claim would guarantee the lead in the series over rivals New Zealand.
