UR7s SA are please to announce a new and extremely exciting project called UR7A-side that will hit the shores of Cape Town and the foot of the mountains in Stellenbosch in March.
Cape Town kicks off on the 6th of March and Stellenbosch the 8th of March with seasons running for 5 weeks and then finals day between the two venues to find the '7s Legend of the Western Cape' winners.
The concept comes from the newly added sport Rugby 7s to the olympic games and has been altered to accommodate not only the fleet footed player but also the larger 15s player, because 7s is all about a balanced team.
UR7a-side is completely non-contact and played on a full size-field meaning it's a new concept for touch rugby players as well and brings together the rugby, rugby 7s and touch rugby players in the Western Cape in one sport.
The UR7s team looks forward to nights of action filled with skill, speed, footwork and team work as sides apply 7s and touch tactics to find success.
