Join the Saints' Summer of Sevens!

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

While the XV man game is currently in the midst of a three month hiatus, you can still get your rugby fix with the fast paced and thrilling sevens game - soon to become an Olympic sport! - enjoying a fantastic, fun atmosphere with friends and family in the process.

First up Sale Sharks, 2011 winners Newcastle and Aviva Premiership champions Leicester arrive at the Gardens for the Pool B qualifier of the JP Morgan Sevens Series - a fun filled evening for the whole family that will also see a beer festival, the launch of a unique Saints sausage around the ground and a host of activities and entertainment.

In recent years some of the most talented young rugby players in the country have worn the black, green and gold in the JP Morgan Premiership Sevens Series - including the likes of Alex Day and Tom Stephenson who recently won the Junior World Championship with England Under-20 in France.

Not only will the Saints be keen to reach finals day at Bath's Rec a week later but the evening will also act as the perfect warm up for when they make history as part of the first ever World Club 7s at Twickenham - a tournament which kicks off on Saturday, August 17th.

All Pool fixtures have now been confirmed for a weekend littered with some of the biggest club names in rugby - not least Super Rugby giants Vodacom Blue Bulls, who have been drawn in Pool B along with the Saints, Buenos Aires and San Francisco - former club of double Saints Player of the Season Samu Manoa.

The multi-national theme continues around the tournament, with sides from Australia, New Zealand and Russia also involved - the Brumbies, Auckland and VVA Moscow among the 12 teams as well as fellow Premiership campaigners Harlequins.

Finals day for the competition will take place a day later on Sunday, August 18th and the Saints have packages for rugby hungry supporters to watch both days at Twickenham with a whopping 50 percent off!
