GRR: LA 7s
The Cape Town 7s worked the same as the Dubai 7s and shortened some of the consolation brackets in order to fit both the men and the women in one field.
The captains from the 26 teams at the Cape Town 7s gathered Tuesday for a group photo and a few others crashed the party.
Two cheetahs, an eagle, a hawk, and a python also posed, although the cheetahs actually look like they’d rather be somewhere else.
It’s a busy time for the Atlantis select side program.
After fielding four women and girls teams at the New York 7s, all of which made their respective finals, Atlantis will send a men’s team and a women’s team to the Barbados 7s this weekend, and has also signed up to be in the LA Invitational as part of the LA 7s international weekend February 29-Mach 1.
The venue hosting the LA 7s February 29-March 1 has undergone some major upgrades in the last few years, making Dignity Health Sports Park—slated to be the rugby venue for the 2028 Olympics—something of a newly-burnished jewel on the rugby landscape.
The LA 7s World Series tournament has an invitational surrounding it which has over two-dozen brackets, one that gives players an exciting playing experience and while also exposing them to some of the top rugby athletes around the world.
