National 7s: form guide

As well as the results of Sunday's tournament (see the Herts blog) there was also a North East Sevens last month (see Darlington's website) featuring Darlington and Tynedale, with the former beating the latter "narrowly" in the final.

I've not been able to trace any reports from the Dorking Sevens on 13th May (which I assume went ahead, even though the host's U17s were "otherwise engaged"?)

Incidentally isn't annoying how many of these tournaments there are that you cannot trace any information about, or that you often only hear about after they have happened, and so on? I'm sure many of these events would get even better enties if they threw their net wider - look at Herts Sevens (or, come to that, Worthing 10s)! Sometimes there is stuff on the RFUW website, but that is a nightmare to use (thanks to what seems to be an over-complex - and rather out-of-date systems. Have they never heard of RSS newsfeeds at Twickenham?)

If you know about these events well ahead you could base a small tour/weekend away around them, or just make a special long trip (always worth it as with a tournament you know you'll get several games, and probably for both age groups). One of the great ideas behind the Regional 10s was that to give clubs a chance to enter any tournament anywhere - which we took advantage of with our trip to Jimmies.
