Rugby News All you need to know about JP Morgan 7s at the Gardens
The Saints’ summer of sevens kicks off this Friday night as Franklin’s Gardens hosts the JP Morgan Premiership Rugby 7s – and full details have been confirmed of an evening full of action even before the rugby starts on the field!
The event promises to be fun for all the family, with some fast paced rugby sevens preceded by a host of entertainment for both children and adults alike.
The day begins on the back pitches at 3pm, with local sevens teams battling it out in the Elite Insurance 7s tournament. Gates for the stadium will open at 5:15pm, with the matchday village playing host to a range of guest ale's in a Beer Festival, the launch of the new, tasty Saints sausage and other fun activities for the children to get involved in with the Saints community team. The Rodber Suite will also be open to under-14s for the first time.
Four of the Saints’ England boys; Dylan Hartley, Lee Dickson, Stephen Myler and Courtney Lawes, will then be signing autographs between 6-7pm as well before the main event starts at 7:15pm with the Saints taking on Newcastle.
There will also be chances to win some exciting prizes throughout the evening in the ‘Face in the Crowd’ competition, and the opportunity for a lucky supporter to take on Franklins Gardens, in the ‘Ultimate Fan Challenge’ at 8:55pm.
