More on Herts and National 7s

The draw for Herts 7s will be made on Monday week (27th) at the next county meeting - Mike should be there to ensure all is above board, etc!  At the moment we do not have a separate U15 entry - and that event could have as many as 20 teams in it. The U18s should have at least 14, possibly  16 in the end.

The draw will be seeded again, based on previous years' results and tweaked a bit with results in competitions this year (not that there have been many). We can therefore expect a pretty high seeding as we were finalists last time, but the actual seedings have not been finalised. Likely opponents will most of the county's clubs, plus familiar names like Aylestone St James, Suffolk Sabres and Reading, the return of names from the past like Paviors and Thomas Becket, and some new opponents like Ealing, Oakmedians and Plymouth. However, no Worcester or (at the moment) Basford.

The U15s will include most the same teams, but will also feature all the Thames Valley cluster teams, plus the likes of Worcester, Camberley and London Irish. All in all it is a very impressive line up!

Meanwhile the National 7s entry is picking up - now 14 teams in the U18s and 15 in the U15s, while the adult event is now up to 7 (still a month or more to go). See here for current list.
