The Australian Rugby Union has introduced a new and exciting form, of the game they play in Heaven, and on the North Shore. VIVA 7’s is the new, non-contact version of Rugby Sevens that can be played by male and female of all ages, no matter their sporting background or experience.
What is VIVA 7’s?
VIVA 7’s gives participants a safe and fun environment to have a high-intensity workout. It’s the best way to get fit and have fun with your family and friends.
VIVA 7’s has been introduced to bring new participants to rugby as well as give current players a social brand of game involvement. VIVA 7’s allows juniors to learn the nuances of the sport, while practicing the basics, in a fun and safe environment. It allows for people of all abilities to explore their creative side.
There is a maximum of 7 players on the field in each team. Teams have 7 “touches” to score a try. There’s two 7 minute halves and, at typical VIVA 7’s centres, teams play up to two matches each session.
Once your game is finished, there are a number of social opportunities to partake in to mix it up with your mates or family.
How Do you Play?
Who Can Play?
Anyone can play – men, women, girls and boys. How much fun would it be playing in a team with your wife or husband? Ignore this statement if you could think of nothing worse – as you don’t have to play in a mixed team.
However, no one can explain any Rugby related matter like John Eales so watch this video and find out more.
