The Scots Sevens – 1 April 2017

The Scots College, Sydney is hosting a schoolboys rugby 7s tournament this Saturday, 1 April 2017.

Twelve teams from Australia, Fiji and New Zealand will compete in a full day of matches, starting at 10.00am.

This year’s event will again feature some of the best local and overseas schoolboy 7s players, including several members of the recently selected Australian Youth Boys Rugby Sevens Squad.

Four pools of three teams (see below) will battle it out for the Pillinger Cup, Rhino Shield and Midford Plate, with the Cup final kicking off at 4.30pm.

The tournament is shaping up to be an action packed day of top notch schoolboys 7s rugby, with plenty of off field activities to keep the whole family entertained.
