Thu, 05 Sep 2013 10:07
The weather forecast is excellent.
The famous Villager Sevens has recovered from last weekend’s disappointment when the weather forced a postponement and will be happening this Friday, 6 September.
The venue is the Villager Football Club on Lansdowne Road, Claremont. All three fields will be used.
The Sevens starts at 14.00 (two o'clock) and ends with the Final of the Trophy which starts at 20.15.
The weather forecast is excellent - sunny with perhaps a dash of cloud and no chance of rain. The high is set to be 19°C dropping to 13°C.
There will still be 32 teams taking part - the same number as was to have been the case last week but with changes. Bishops have two teams fewer and both Table View teams will not be taking part. But Paul Roos have entered two teams, Trafalgar one and SACS a fourth team.
