Artemyev ready to take on the sevens world with Russia

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

The 25-year-old has featured heavily for the Bears this year, helping the side gain a foothold for RWC 2015 qualification with a solid start in the 2013 European Nations Cup.

Now with 37 caps to his name, however, Artemyev is taking a break from the XV man game to try and help his side to sevens glory in Moscow - the region in which he grew up.

Russia's tilt begins with a stern test against South Africa on Friday, with further Pool B fixtures against Scotland and Japan due to take place on Saturday at Luzhniki Stadium.

Action will be aired on Sky Sports 3, via the red button from 1:55pm on Saturday and live in HD from 6:15am on Sunday - finals day in Moscow.
