2016 Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Series to hit centre stage in July and August

WadeSingha7s15

Premiership Rugby today confirms a red hot summer of 7s to co-incide with rugby’s return to the Olympic Games.

The second year of the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Series will kick off in Cardiff before visiting Exeter Chiefs, Northampton Saints and Newcastle Falcons with the Series Final at the Ricoh Arena.
 
“The 7s Series kicked off in 2010 and since then it has become a date to look forward to in the rugby calendar," said the Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby, Phil Winstanley.

“Sevens is at its most high profile this year with its return to the Olympics in Rio and Premiership Rugby continues to lead the way when it comes to club 7s.
 
“Last year’s final was won with a try in the last second of the final game between Wasps and Newport Gwent Dragons and we can expect this year’s series to be just as exciting.”
