It's coming up to that time of year again, and for anyone new or anyone that hasn't been before, if you like rugby even a tiny bit (or like looking at some incredibly fit men running around - either works!) then you really have to go along to the Rugby 7s at the Adelaide Oval on the weekend of 2nd and 3rd April.
Here are the details: Adelaide Sevens | Tournament
The game is fast and furious, so you don't have to have too long an attention span to enjoy it, and the audience is almost as much fun to watch as the onfield action, with the Fijians, Samoans and Kenyans in full voice, and a great mix of all nationalities in the crowd. There are threats that Adelaide may lose this event to another city after this year, which would be a devastating loss (for me, anyway!)
Many of the players from 7s go on to play "normal" rugby for their country (such as Ben Foden and Matt Banahan to name but two in the England side) and you gt a real up-close view.
Am I waxing too lyrical? Honestly, I've been for the past few years and it's such a fun day (or two)!
PS England, Scotland and Wales are all playing - and England and New Zealand are currently top of the rankings neck and neck this year! Hong Kong tournament is the weekend of 25/27 March so you can watch that on Foxtel to get in the mood if you like!
