Rosslyn Park National School Sevens
THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 24TH MARCH 2013
The Rosslyn Park National School Sevens (NS7) is the world's largest rugby tournament, evolving from humble beginnings way back in 1939 and expanding to accommodate over 7,000 boys and girls aged 13-19 every year. Held at the Rosslyn Park F.C. ground near Richmond in south west London, the NS7 still features a lmost all of the 16 founding schools and, although it remains an invitation event, no eligible school can be refused entry upon application. A number of famous rugby players from years gone by have taken part in the tournament: Welsh legend Gareth Edwards was a member of the 1966 champion Millfield side and would-be English stars Will Carling, Lawrence Dallaglio and Rob Andrew all took part before they made it big. The tournament trophies are presented by rugby celebrities - expect to see the likes of Martin Bayfield and John Inverdale present. The sporting institution that is Millfield School in Somerset hold the record for the most NS7 wins with 13 and they'll be amongst the favourites come March.
