Premiership Rugby 7s
With free-flowing tries, lightning-fast offloads and crunching tackles all a certainty across two days of competition, the Premiership Rugby 7s is the chance to see the next generation of rugby stars go toe-to-toe.
Hosts Saints will lock horns with local rivals Wasps – who have won the last two editions of the tournament. Previous winners Newcastle Falcons and Saracens join Leicester Tigers to complete Pool B, while Exeter Chiefs, Worcester Warriors, and Bath Rugby will contest Pool C. Harlequins, Sale Sharks, and newly-promoted Bristol Bears make up Pool D.

“We’re really excited to be hosting the 7s competition here at Franklin’s Gardens in front of our own supporters,” said Mark Hopley, Saints Academy head coach.
“It’s a superb opportunity to start the season off on the front foot for the Club, and also for a number of our talented young players to put their hands up as they look to push for first team selection.”
For the Northampton hosts, the focus of the rugby public will show off the regions resources. “Hopefully we can put on a good show, and play some entertaining rugby in front of a big crowd here on home soil.”
