Sunday’s Bryanston 7s draw looks exciting

The 2014 Bryanston 7s takes place on Sunday, drawing some of the top teams from the South West together as the School 7s season begins to reach its peak.

The is the last major opportunity for those attending to build up some major 7s form ahead of the Surrey 7s on Wednesday and the Rosslyn Park National Schools 7s the following week.

Filton are drawn with the hosts Bryanston in Group A, and with talented individuals in their ranks like Rory Jennings and Max Clark, Bryanston will be hopeful of repeating their 2012 success on home soil. Abingdon and Canadian side GP Vanier complete the Group.

Unfortunately last year’s winners, Brighton College, will not be in attendance as they are committed to the Worth 7s this year, therefore the side that they beat 19-5 in that final, King’s College Taunton, head up Group B.

They are drawn with Portsmouth Grammar School and Millfield’s 2nd VII, and the exciting Truro School also involved – this should be a fun group to watch.

Hampton School make the trip over to take their place in Group C, they will join up with Bristol Grammar School, Blundell’s, and Taunton, and will hope to be able to collect a 7s trophy ahead of a busy and competitive couple of weeks for the NatWest Cup quarter finalists 7-a-side team.

Group D looks very open, and King’s Bruton and KES Bath particularly will be hoping to be able to take good advantage of that and progress to the knockout stages, though past form says that Canford and King Edward VI Southampton will be tricky obstacles, Canford particularly.

It ought to be a superb tournament, and a fantastic opportunity to get a bit more sevens time under the belts with Rosslyn Park edging ever nearer.
