Each team will play 4 or 5 matches across the day plus a professional masterclass from the UR7s coaches.
Masterclasses for All
As well as quality competition, all UR7s competitions include a 7s masterclass for all entered teams from an international 7s player on the day.
International players & coaches such as Chris Cracknell, Sam Edgerley, Christian Lewis-Pratt and many more work the teams over a short session underlining some of the important aspects of the game of 7s.
The UR7s National Academy scouting department use all UR7s competitions to watch and scout players for the National Academy program that runs from August to June each year. Scouts will spend time with club coaches to get to know players and how they might benefit from being involved in the UR7s National Academy program.
