Exeter 7s Tournament Fixtures Announced

Posted by Bev on 14 June, 2016

The pools and fixtures for next month’s Mitsubishi Motors Exeter 7s have been confirmed as Sandy Park prepares to host the Rugby Europe Grand Prix Sevens Series for the second time.

The tournament, which takes place July 9-10, forms a key part of GB Sevens’ preparations for Rio with the wider training squad competing as two teams, the GB Lions and GB Royals.

GB Royals will face Portugal, Poland and France during match day one while GB Lions will take on Belgium and Italy before concluding day one against Germany.

Fellow Rio competitors France will also play in the second leg of the Rugby Europe Grand Prix Sevens Series in Exeter. They currently sit second in the series rankings after the opening leg in Moscow.

The GB Lions topped their pool in Russia with victories over Portugal, Poland and France and sit third overall, while the GB Royals, defeated Georgia, Lithuania and hosts Russia on day one. They currently sit fifth in the rankings after lifting the plate.

Spain, Lithuania, Russia and Georgia will also compete at Sandy Park, which last year hosted a leg of the series for the first time.

As one of the 13 venues for last year’s Rugby World Cup, Sandy Park is ideally placed amongst a hot bed of rugby in the South West, creating an ideal opportunity for supporters from around the region, and further afield, to enjoy yet more international rugby following the success of three sell-out Rugby World Cup fixtures at Sandy Park.
