The Rosslyn Park HSBC Virtual 7s in association with NextGenXV kicks off next week.
After Friday’s announcement of the competition, excitement already appears to be buzzing. That excitement ought to continue this week as the draws are announced, beginning today with the U11 and U13 Draws, both tournaments will be taking place on Monday 22nd March.
Following a welcome message to open the tournament from ourselves at NextGenXV at 9.30am on Monday, the U11 Groups will take place at 10am, ahead of Quarter Finals at 11am, Semi Finals at Midday, and the Final at 1pm.

The tournament format will be that of a vote on the Rosslyn Park HSBC National School 7s Twitter page, @RPNS7 you will decide who progress from each group and through each round!
There are 20 teams in the U11 Draw, split into five groups of four. You will vote on @RPNS7 for the winner of each group, who will then progress to the quarter finals along with the three best runners up (by vote %).
