Byron Rugby Sevens

It’s that glorious  time of year again, when 32 mens teams and 16 womens teams descend on Byron Bay for the Annual Rugby Sevens. Now in its 23rd year, the Byron Sevens is one of the biggest and most colourful tournaments on the Australian calendar. What was once an Olympic drinking sport, Rugby Sevens is now part of the program at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

Australia’s  best-known rugby club, Randwick, make their first appearance and are hoping to draw on some famous ‘Ella’ magic in their opening match on Saturday against North Brisbane. Leading Australian sevens teams Manly, Eastwood, South Brisbane and the Gold Coast Breakers all have title aspirations, along with a host of top Fiji and Kiwi teams. Local champions Lennox Trojans and Byron Bay, both fresh from Grand Final wins, are keen to add some more silverware.

The always-popular Women’s division is stronger than ever and is sure to feature the biggest hits as the best of the Aussies take on their Kiwi and Samoan rivals. New Zealand’s Arongatahi make their first appearance (even the name scares me) and will be taking no prisoners on or off the field.

The action takes place all day Saturday and Sunday at the Byron Recreation Fields from 9am. The draw is available at the Rails or online at Byron Bay Rugby. Finals start on Sunday from 1.30pm. The Bay have their opening clash against Perth on Saturday at 11.30am. Local champion Mick ‘Wombat’ Leece continues to break all records for durability. Despite never meeting Lance Armstrong, Leece is set to line up for his 23rd consecutive Byron Rugby Sevens.

The beer is cold and admission is free all weekend. Go the Bay!

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”

Echonetdaily is made possible by the support of all of our advertisers.
