Saints forward Lewis Ludlam says that his side are looking to win some silverware at the Singha Sevens this season, which come to the Gardens next Friday.
Ludlam, who was part of the Saints team that took part in the Green King IPA Sevens at Bury St Edmunds back in May, said: “We did well at Bury, but we would have liked to make the Cup final.
“We haven’t won the Singha Sevens but we are looking to build on our Bury performance and hopefully we can win some silverware this year.”
Although a couple of players from the Saints already having international sevens experience, Ludlam went on to say that the Singha Sevens is an opportunity for the 15-a-side players to show what they can do in the shortened version of the game.
“There’s obviously a few lads there that have played a little bit of international sevens like Sion Bennett but we all come from the same background. It’s a chance for 15s players to really show their skills and compete against each other in a sevens environment.”
In recent years the Singha Sevens has seen rugby stars of the future take to the field, with Ludlam saying it is a great opportunity for those aspiring players to showcase their skills in front a thousands of spectators.
“There’s a lot of young lads who haven’t played in front of a lot of fans so it’s a chance to show what we can do on a big stage. It’s another chance to put on a Saints shirt and hopefully win some silverware."
