Referees to 25 March 2013


Sevens are back in action this week as rugby catches its breath after the end of the Six Nations and that breath-taking surprise in Cardiff.

The Sevens this time is the iconic one – the Hong Kong Sevens, for many years rugby's biggest party. The Hong Kong Sevens were the brainchild of Tokkie Smith, a South African who for many years lived in Hong Kong. They will be played over three days – 22, 23 and 24 March 2013.
