In what was initially planned as a back-up competition in case the traditional Winter season of Rugby Union did not get underway, SIRU is excited to push forward with plans for a 7s competition comparable to Competitions around the world.
Nominations for teams were opened during the Winter Season, with a cap of 8 teams per Men's and Women's Grade available.
There will be a tournament on 31st October 2020 in Hay, and another on 7th November 2020 in Leeton.
Each Tournament will feature 40 exciting matches across the two grades, with each team guaranteed 3 Pools Matches and 2 Finals of some form through the day.
Each tournament will kick off at around 11AM, and conclude at approximately 7:30PM.
The Clubs involved are: Albury, Deniliquin, Griffith, Hay, Leeton, Reddies, Tumut, Wagga City, and Waratahs.
Players will be required to register as per usual procedure through Rugby Xplorer.
The Competition will tally points from the two tournaments to crown a Competition Champion in each Grade.
The two weekends following this will see the inaugural season of Capital 7s featuring the 6 Premier Clubs of the John I Dent competition, as well as SIRU and another team involved in Men's, Women's and Colts (U20s). Great opportunity for players from SIRU to show their talents against the best players in the Capital!
Draws and further details will come out closer to the event, if you are interested in being involved, reach out to your club or a club listed above to find out more about their involvement!
