York Civil was a sponsor of the South Australian Rugby Union’s Rugby 7s Grand Finals, that were held at the Brighton Rugby Club on 26 and 27 August. Rugby 7s is a fast paced, up and coming sport, which debuted at the Olympic Games this year. This form of the game features seven players, instead of the traditional 15, and is played in seven-minute halves, compared to the traditional 40 minute halves.
The Grand Final campaign was a successful day, which the Junior team Grand Finals played on Friday night, followed by the Seniors on the Saturday. The Old Collegians Club dominated the day, with six teams playing in Grand Finals, and four teams leaving with Premierships.
York Civil enjoyed mingling with the community in this new venture, and are looking forward to continuing to build on this relationship with the rugby community.
