Dear Club,

This year SWRU National 7s competition will be a combined event with the Emirates Airline Edinburgh Sevens and the associated Festival of Rugby to be held at Murrayfield on 2nd and 3rd June. This is a change from the previously advertised date on the Calendar.

Hosting the tournament in conjunction with this major International event brings us the opportunity to raise the profile of our sport and allows us to offer additional benefits to participants and volunteers at no cost to SWRU Affiliated Teams.

The squad of 12 players and 2 coaching staff will all receive free tickets to the Emirates Airline Edinburgh Sevens.
