Huge weekend of 7s for NSW at the National Championships


By NSW Waratahs Media unit


New South Wales will be well represented at the National Sevens Championships in Bendigo this weekend.   The 2-day tournament plays host to all of the State representative sides as well as the National Indigenous team, the Australian Defence Force and the Australian Universities side.

NSW will have two women’s sides and one men’s side competing against the best in Australia.

With Queensland taking the spoils at the 2016 national tournament in Adelaide in both the Women’s and Men’s competitions, NSW will be looking to get one back on their main rivals with a clean sweep in Bendigo.

This tournament is an important part of the player pathway at a national, regional and affiliate level. The tournament is a great platform for players, coaches and officials to be identified and recruited into higher honours.

The games will be held at Epsom Huntly Recreation Reserve, Bendigo on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 November.
