As a rollercoaster ride of no time-outs, scintillating acts of athleticism, and age-old rules passed down from centuries of traditions, it’s no wonder rugby is one of the fastest growing sports around the world, especially now that the Rugby Sevens is making its Olympic debut at the Rio Summer games this year.
Singapore’s World Rugby Sevens Series has provided an exciting competition for fans in over 150 territories since 1999. Anthony S Casey attended the Singapore leg of the games. The two-day tournament featured 16 of the world’s top Rugby Sevens teams; from the Aussies to the tough Kiwis, to the South African Blitzboks. Plenty of ferocious fumbles, tackles, rough-housing, tears and laughter, were to be had. The chaos and beauty was as wonderful as the host city, Singapore.
