Hong Kong Sevens

Hong Kong Sevens

Today (in fact in 30 minutes) sees the start of one, if not THE, biggest sporting events in Asia. I only heard about the Hong Kong Sevens rugby tournament a few years ago and it is generally associated with the words "party" and "mayhem".

The tournament lasts 2 and a half days, commencing on Friday afternoon, and concluding on Sunday evening. Sevens is a stripped-down version of rugby union with seven players each side on a normal-sized field, rather than the normal fifteen and the game lasts just seven minutes each half.

I managed to score tickets so am pretty excited about the whole thing although Ireland didn't make it this year :-((

It is bucketing down rain here right now but it will take more than that to dampen the party spirit of the throngs of people who fly in from all over the world to watch this infamous spectacle. Check the YouTube video for a taster!
