Men’s Team

IMG_1536The men’s FRN 7s team was founded in 2012 and has competed in tournaments around the UK and abroad, which have included: Bournemouth 7s, Malta Tournament, National Pub 7s, Milton Keynes 7s, Chiswick 7s, Graham Robinson Memorial 7s, East London 7s, FRN 7s, Doom Bar London Beach Rugby Tournament and others.

The highlight has been winning the plate at Bournemouth 7s in 2014 and playing against Nigeria and Italy – losing by only one try to Italy at the 2013 National Pub 7s. In 2015 the team also won the plate at the National Pub 7s.

The team has also enjoyed meeting the England 7s team, playing in beach rugby tournaments in the center of London on several occasions and touring to Malta last summer.

The team consists of a solid group of amateur and semi-professional players that have a good level of experience playing rugby 7s, but need an experienced coach to take it to that next level.

Coaching Requirements

teamCoaches will be expected to conduct two trial sessions/practices before the 7s season begins and attend rugby tournaments with the squad.

We are looking for experienced rugby 7s coaches, but we will consider coaches that have experience coaching 15s rugby but with a keen interest to develop their rugby 7s knowledge.

We expect coaches that can add value and provide well-needed structure to the team, including warm-ups at tournaments, strategy sessions and 7s specific coaching advice.

We have a good set up with a professional kit supplier and equipment for tournaments including marquee, etc. so we present a good outfit with all the necessities for a semi-professional team.
