Rugby Legends return to Allianz Park for all-star 7's and the City game
This Friday (30th June) will see 2017’s Sevens and the City tournament kick off, with an all-star game at Allianz Park set to open the weekend’s festivities, kicking off at 20H15.
The Worldwide Currencies Cup will see a side captained by Saracens legend Neil de Kock facing a #LiftTheWeight XV in a match raising money for Restart Rugby, the official charity of the Rugby Players’ Association (RPA).
The match will also look to increase awareness of the #LiftTheWeight mental health campaign, which encourages players to speak out about issues they may be suffering from, such as anxiety or depression, and ensuring they’ve got the opportunity to seek guidance and support throughout dealing with them.
The two teams are studded with rugby greats and Saracens legends, with players from England, Wales, Australia and South Africa all set to take part, including Iain Balshaw, Noah Cato, Mark Cueto and 7’s and the City organisers David Strettle and Matt Stevens.
