Planning Underway For 2016 Olympic Sevens

Rugby Sevens will be played in the 2016 Olympics Games in Rio De Janeiro. Discussions concerning Great Britain’s participation in the sport took place at a meeting in Twickenham, London.

A joint statement from the Home Unions reads: "The Chief Executives and other representatives of the Home Unions met at Twickenham today to discuss Team GB's (men and women) participation in the 2016 Olympic Games.  The sport's inclusion is a great opportunity to further grow the game at national and international level. As with previous collaborations, the meeting was positive and progressive and discussions will continue."

Sevens is also a core sport at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
