With Rugby Sevens now an official Olympic sport, this weekend’s Sevens Wellington tournament has taken on new significance.
Wellington hosts the fifth leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series, and there’ll be 15 international teams in action, as well as our world champion All Black Sevens. The official photo shows all the captains yesterday at Oriental Bay.
