    This is a great initiative, glad that they have got it going. The clubs will certainly benefit from use of their ground over this period and the people it brings in. Hopefully it allows some new 7s talent to emerge as well.

    Will be interesting to see which clubs take this seriously. I think there may be a few blow outs - esp. when the speciality sides are playing.

    Got down to UQ for the finals. Pretty good standard of footy. Good win by the Bank. Easts and Wests not to far behind. See what happens at Brothers in a few weeks.

    Congrats to all involved in running the 7's on the weekend. Particularly the Admin from Sunnybank for doing all of the heavy lifting in putting it together. It will only grow from here. There was some fantastic 7 played and the vibe from this who were there was really positive. I would not be surprised to see it include colts next year.

    All clubs will be better for the run. I really liked the boys from NT.

    What was the turn out like? Really like this initiative. Hoping the NSWRU and the clubs can sort something out down this way.

    Mate I would have said a reasonable crowd I went fairly early and I did not stay until the end. UQ is probably not a good judge of what a crowd should be as they don't have a great in person following. There was a younger demographic at the game as many of the older crowd don't like 7's. I think if they run it like a festival at some of the other clubs they will do OK.

    Australia’s next generation of Sevens stars will head to Ballymore this weekend with three separate Championships being conducted in the Senior Men’s Sevens as well as the Youth Boys and Youth Girls Sevens tournaments.

    The National Sevens Championships has seen the likes of Tim Anstee, Lachlan Anderson, Demi Hayes, Emma Sykes, Maurice Longbottom and Dominique Du Toit progress onto higher honours and provides an invaluable opportunity for Australian selectors to find their next generation of development players.

    Several of last year’s competitors continued on to play in the Aon University Sevens Series, with the likes of Sariah Paki, Jakiya Whitfield and Hagiga Mosby graduating into the victorious Australian Women’s Sevens side during the 2018 Oceania Sevens Championships.

    Queensland will be a force to be reckoned with on their home soil, hosting three teams in both the youth girls and boys pools. Queensland will also have two teams in the Senior Men’s Championship, who will be at full strength off the back of the inaugural Queensland Premier Rugby Sevens series.

    Rugby Australia’s Performance Manager Sevens Rugby, Scott Bowen said: “The level of talent that we can and have discovered at these tournaments is always outstanding, with many of the players going into our academies and talent pathway.

    “The youth tournaments always throw up players who have gone onto become some of our most consistent performers on the world series.

    “In the senior men’s competition this year we will also see a lot of our nationally contracted players, who missed out on Dubai and are returning to their states to get essential game time.”

    With free entry across all three days at Ballymore, the public is invited to attend and show their support for the future stars of Australian Rugby Sevens.
