We all know Rugby Sevens to be the fast paced variant of rugby union which has a huge, worldwide following.
It’s important for kit specialists such as ourselves to invest back into the game that we love so much. That being said, we’re proud this year to have our very own presence in Sevens tournaments this year with the Scimitar Exiles.
Formerly the Forces Exiles, the British invitational 7s team will travel the globe in a range of tournaments, beginning with the Heinken Kinsales 7s tournament in Cork. Last year, the Exiles were defeated in the Elite Final by the Wooden Spoon Marauders, so will be looking to go one better!
Kitted out in a stunning blue Scimitar custom kit, we’ve worked hard to create an elite rugby sevens kit designed to withstand the demands of a rugby sevens game. The change kit is even better – a vibrant pink designed purposely to stand out from the crowd!
Why are we telling you this?
The Super Sevens Series venues and teams have just been announced, with the inclusion of the new-look Scimitar Exiles teams. We’re really excited to be part of this event, featuring a range of teams from England, Ireland, Jamaica and the British Army.
Beginning on the 7th May at Braywick Road (home of Bury St Edmunds RFC), the series will visit the GK IPA Habarden (home of Maidenhead RUFC), Sixways (home of Worcester Warriors) and the Recreation Ground (home of Bath), ending on the 29th July.
The 2016 series saw over 440 tries scored across 66 matches, so if you’re after a great day out full of entertainment and high quality rugby, visit your local event.
What other events will the Scimitar Exiles be taking part in?
Other than the Heineken Kinsales & Super Sevens Series, you’ll be able to see the Exiles at the Roma Sevens in June and the Howard Hinton Sevens tournament in France in July.
We’ll be sure to bring you loads of photos, videos and match reports from each of the events, as the Exiles set out to conquer the UK sevens scene!
