The exciting summer 7s series, growing in popularity each year, returns to provide fans with four evenings of fast flowing rugby entertainment.
Leicester Tigers will take on Sale Sharks, Northampton Saints and defending champions Newcastle Falcons in the pool stages. Sale’s Edgeley Park ground will host the games on Friday, July 20 in the second week of the competition.
It kicks off the week before with Harlequins hosting the first event at the Stoop on Friday 13th July. Joining Harlequins in this pool will be London Irish, London Wasps and last year’s finalists Saracens.
The third J.P. Morgan Asset Management Premiership Rugby 7s Series event will be held at Kingsholm, the home of Gloucester Rugby, on Thursday, July 26. Bath Rugby, Exeter Chiefs and Worcester Warriors will join Gloucester in this pool.
The top two seeds from each of the three pools will then go through to the J.P. Morgan Asset Management Premiership Rugby 7s Series Final, which will take place on Friday, August 3 at the Recreation Ground in Bath, where the winners will be crowned.
