Why ULTRA SEVENS RUGBY ?
Four 15 minute quarters and a 20 halftime interval provides a sustained stage to feature the incredible energy associated with Sevens Rugby.
Sevens is a fast paced game with lots of opportunity for big hits and lots of scoring. It is a game that can be readily picked up by the novice rugby fan and player.
Teams have 16 players rather than 12 players, allowing for tactical substitutions and the introduction of role/impact players in certain situations in a game.
This brand of 7's rugby is media friendly . The approximate 90 minute length of the the game makes it ideal for say a 2 hour television production and newspaper coverage.
