Leg 3 of the WowHydrate Super 7s Series takes place this Saturday at Stafford RFC and once again NextGenXV will be bringing you all of the action from Pitch 1 on our Live Stream.
Last time out at London Irish’s Hazelwood base, Hong Kong won the men’s competition and Hammerheads claimed the Cup in the women’s competition.
It was a magnificent day in the sunshine of South West London as Hong Kong avenged that loss to Samurai RFC in extra time in the final at Leg 1, hosted by Newbury RFC, beating Apache 63-14 in the final to send them to the top of the overall standings, three points clear of reigning champions Samurai RFC.
Hammerheads’ 31-19 defeat of Savvy Panthers in the final of the Women’s competition at London Irish saw them climb to second in the table, only behind Samurai on points difference as we head into Leg 3.
You will be able to watch all of the action from the main pitch from both the men’s and women’s tournaments on Saturday via our YouTube channel or through the embedded video below.
