Could Herts 7s 2010 be the best yet?

The 2009 Herts 7s at OAs looked hard to beat, but news from Tring RFC - hosts for 2010 - is that they already have 32 teams for the U12, U15 and U18 competitions three months ahead of the event. A few places remain but already most of the familiar names from across the south and midlands we all know so well  are already signed up, including Worcester, London Irish, Newquay Hornets (their first Herts 7s I think), Thomas Becket School, Paviors, "Jimmies", and Oakmedians, as well as league rivals Oxfordshire, Middlesex Leopards and Bucks Jesters, plus the "locals" Welwyn and Hertford.

Its a really exciting line up at what has become a major tournament of national importance - arguably second only to the National Sevens. Its also normally played in glorious sunshine (as opposed to the nationals, where most years it seems to rain) - a nice thought after another week of snow and freezing winds!
