Posted in: 

Following a meeting of the Swaziland Rugby Executive committee on Saturday May 1st, Rugby Union Vice President, Sibusiso Nkambule announced the proposed date for the Swazi National 7's Rugby Tournament.  "Having held the very successful Inyeti 7's Rugby Tournaments on a monthly basis where four invited teams participated the Rugby Union executive decided to hold a 7's Rugby Tournament for Clubs from within Swaziland. 



We have received positive feedback from eight Rugby Clubs who have all pledged their support for the Swazi National 7's Rugby Tournament.  We want to see the game of 7's grow within the Kingdom and the Rugby Union executive felt this was a positive move forward.  This will be a local 7's Rugby tournament for local teams.  The Swazi National 7's will be played on Saturday August 21st.  This will give the Rugby Clubs plenty of time to practice playing 7's and select their best team. The 7's Rugby tournament will help raise awareness of the game of Rugby and give local players a chance to show their skills." said Nkambule.
