This is the 3rd Year of running these events that have grown each year. In previous years we have had teams enter from North Walsham, Norwich, Lakenham, West Norfolk , Great Yarmouth –Broadland, Crusaders, Dereham, Watton, Holt and Wymondham. The purpose of the events is to ease the transition of youth rugby players into senior rugby outside of the physical contact of the 15 aside game. The event held at Norwich is the is the first of four sevens events this season, which are held at central locations across Norfolk.
Future dates and venues all 7.30pm Kick offs
Friday 17th June @ Thetford RFC (TBC)
Friday 1st July @ Swaffham
Friday 15th July @ Lakenham Hewett RFC
So far teams that have confirmed for this seasons events are Norwich RFC, West Norfolk RFC, Holt RFC and Great Yarmouth-Broadlands RFC with potentially more to follow.
