The growth of sevens rugby has been phenomenal and at this year’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, crowds in excess of 170,000 watched. In 2016 the Olympic Games in Rio welcomes rugby union back with the inclusion of 7s. It is not just these IRB events that are raising the profile of the sport but other festivals and tournaments globally; the Hong Kong 7s, the Dubai 7s, the Heineken Kinsale 7s and the Bournemouth 7s.
