It wouldn’t be spring if sports teams didn’t have their end of season bash and it wouldn’t be Byron Bay if their were no Rugby Sevens.
One of the best events on the sporting calendar, I can guarantee that if you have one sporting bone in your body, the most fun you could possibly have this weekend is at the Byron Bay Rugby 7s.
This is a fun family day. The swift succession of games is entertaining to say the least and the contingent of novelty teams makes for interesting viewing. Though not always ‘G’ rated (in 2008 one team stripped to their undies for their knockout match), and you can be pretty sure there will be a at least one streaker, this event is way too much fun.
The Sevens competition has been held in Byron Bay in October for the last 20 years.
The event hosts 32 Men’s teams and 16 Women’s teams, with competitors from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Papua New Guinea
The competition gets underway on Saturday at the the Byron Bay Recreation Grounds, and the knockouts begin on Sunday morning.
The fun really begins when the residue of the teams go head-to-head in the finals on Sunday afternoon.
I just can’t say enough to recommend you go to the event. See more at: www.byronbayrugby.com.au.
