The Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Series returns this week and with tries galore all at a scorching pace, BT Sport will be showing all of the action live.
The series has proved a launch pad for many an international career since its inception with Grand Slam winners Owen Farrell, George Ford, Jack Nowell, Jack Clifford and George Kruis all featuring in the past.
Everything kicks off live in Cardiff on 22 July at 7pm then the 7s moves onto Exeter the following day for a 3pm kick-off. Next week the Series visits Northampton on 29 July and Newcastle on 30 July before the final in Coventry kicks off at 2pm on Sunday 7 August.
It’s an exciting time for rugby 7s with the sport about to make its first appearance at the Olympic Games since 1924. And the Singha 7s, the only 7s tournament where all 12 Premiership Rugby clubs and the four Welsh regions compete, is the leading club 7s event in a summer packed with 7s action.
Friday’s Group A matches will see Cardiff Blues host defending champions Newport Gwent Dragons, Ospreys and Scarlets. BT Sport 2 is the place to be to see all of the matches from 6.45pm.
Then Exeter Chiefs will welcome Bath Rugby, Bristol Rugby and last year’s finalists Wasps to Sandy Park on Saturday. BT Sport Europe will be hosting the coverage of all of the games in Group B from 2.45pm.
Next weekend sees Northampton Saints, Gloucester Rugby, Harlequins and Saracens vying for their spots in the series final on Friday 29 July with coverage on BT Sport Europe from 6.45pm.
Then the last group will see Newcastle Falcons, Leicester Tigers, Sale Sharks and Worcester Warriors looking to gain the last two Series Final spots. BT Sport Europe will be covering Group D from 2.45pm.
The Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Series kicks off on 22 July at Cardiff Arms Park with the Series Final at the Ricoh Arena on Sunday 7 August. For tickets and details visit premiershiprugby.com/singha7stickets
