The largest Rugby 7s festival in Australia is returning to Byron Bay on the weekend of October 15–16.
The event, hosted by the Byron Bay Rugby Club, will see teams from around Australia and New Zealand competing. All up, over 900 players are registered to play across three categories: elite, social and women’s.
The Paladin All-Stars will return with their host of Wallabies, All Blacks and Super Rugby veterans.
‘We’ve had particular interest in the women’s competition and it’s great to see the game growing in that section,’ organiser Eddy Brown said. ‘We’re excited to get George Smith (ex-Wallabies Captain) and his team back for another year so people can meet some of their heroes.’
The 7s Festival is free for the community to watch. The days run from 9am–6pm with food trucks, refreshments, DJs and other live entertainment.
The launch on Friday October 14 will guest feature speakers, DJs and an epic raffle. For more info: [email protected]
