Maroon 7s - Winning Start!

A brand new initiative off the ground with two bits of silver wear!

The Maroon 7s program was an initiative created by 4 current students to ensure a high level of sevens rugby was offered to current and alumni students. Usually in term 3 rugby becomes quieter with the sound of exams throughout the campuses but not this year.

Jake Williams, Enzo Dallaglio, Henry Bedson and Ben Stringer decided they wanted to create something that would continue long after they leave UBRFC but also allowing them to play post university.

They created the Maroon 7, a team that is designed to offer all UBRFC members past and present the opportunity to play 7s for the club they love. This season the team has already been entered into the BUCS university 7s and Hartpury 7s and coming out of both with the plate win. Jake Williams said "We didn't come to these tournaments for that trophy, of course we wanted to win but its a great start for our brand new team".

This is just the start for the team as next year they look to enter current student teams, alumni teams and a mixture of the two. Its had great support from Alumni already with Jamie Houghton sponsoring the match shirts.

The Maroon 7s have 4 more tournaments this summer:

Bournemouth 7s 28th/29th May

Amsterdam 7s 3rd/4th June

Madagascar 7s 23rd June

London 7s 8th July
