The Llandovery College (Cambrian) School 7s take place tomorrow, featuring 32 teams in what looks like a highly competitive tournament.

Millfield are the likely favourites having already claimed three 7s titles this season, they are also the reigning champions having beaten Newport High School 47-7 in last yearâ€™s final. They also won the 2013 edition of the tournament so will be hoping to make it a hat-trick of titles.
