Despite inclement weather the 28th Byron Bay rugby 7s tournament was a spirited display of quality and fast-paced action for spectators.
More than 50 teams competed in men’s and women’s, as well as the social and serious competitions over the weekend.
The Bond University side combined crushing defence and straight running to take out the men’s championship division, defeating Fijian side Tabadamu 26–12 in the final.
Lack of discipline marred the Fijians’ chance of a finals win after they had two players sent to the sin bin.
Lennox Head also put in a great performance, coming away with the men’s social A division prize after they beat Brisbane side Sunnybank Development 26–7.
Deadwood beat Scone 19–10 in the men’s social B division.
The final of the women’s competition was played on Saturday where Sunnybank Women outclassed Sydney University 29–0.
In the playoff for third Inverell Highlanders Women defeated Scone 34–0.
