Clubs from as far afield as Cambridge and Banbury will be heading to Franklin's Gardens for the tournament, which features Under-14 teams battling it out in both cup and plate competitions.

Rugby Sevens is about to explode in popularity and media profile, with the 2013 World Cup being followed three years later by the sport's inclusion in the next Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.


The JP Morgan Asset Management Rugby Sevens Cup gives Under-14 teams the perfect opportunity to develop their Sevens skills in a competitive environment. The winners will not just have the honour of receiving the silverware on the main Franklin's Gardens pitch during the half-time interval of Sunday's match between the Saints and Exeter, but they will also earn their place at the 2013 JP Morgan Asset Management Premiership Rugby Sevens Series final, one of the most prestigious Sevens events in the calendar and an important step on the Road to Rio.


Sunday's action gets underway at 10:30am on the back pitches at Franklin's Gardens, and all of the teams will appreciate your support as you make a full day of the first home fixture of the 2012/13 season!
