Who was the guy on the english team in 2003 with the 7s background?

I think most the other teams had players who played sevens at some stage in their squad who won the world cup, but I cannot think of anyone on that english team.


Lawrence Dallaglio

Thanks. Very informative

I was hoping germany would get onto the sevens series we already have the other home nations in it, and after the reaction on here from the irish to their team making it onto the series I doubly wish another team had made it, it would of grown the game more internationally if another team had made it onto the series.

I’m looking forward to watching them on the circuit next year, but then again I was never as negative about their participation as some of my compatriots. The way I see it , the 7’s circuit is giving opportunities to some hard working, talented players who either didn’t quite make it at elite level 15’s or didn’t get the opportunity. The Irish lads have had to do this the hard way , working their way up through the divisions and you can see how much it means to them . They’ve acquitted themselves very well in any invitational appearances they’ve made and I’m sure they’ll do well next season on the circuit. If their success encourages more young players to take up rugby it’s a further bonus.

We must also remember that as rugby becomes more and more attritional we need to find a space for players that aren’t quite 2 metres tall or 120 kg


there are plenty of players who are not 2 meters tall or 120 kgs who are tearing it up at 15s.


No need to take me som literally :lol: You need to be of a certain size and physique to make it in 15’s nowadays. Many players who don’t fit this criteria may still have a chance of making it in 7’s

No.

That's not to say that a day on the piss in LR should the circus ever come to Dublin wouldn't be very enjoyable indeed.

yeah Irish (on this bored and on this planet) have always been cunts, i was also hoping for germany, a great way to get that part of the world interested in rugby in any form..tbf, the 3 biggest sport in Ireland are 3 sports NO ONE outside Ireland gives a shit about (gaylick football, whoreling and cum-orgy :twisted: ) so their opinions on rugby do not matter :uhoh: :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

Dude they were complaining about have a team in the series, sevens has halped develop and give oportunities to SH players and maybe a few NH ones too.

They can concentrate on finally making it to the semis in a world cup then.

Most of the backline too. Dawson, Lewsey and Greenwood for certain.

To some degree but average sized blokes or just below average 5.8-5.10 79-85kg can still play positions like 9 and 10 if they have the skills for it. Basically most men in countries where people are bigger if they have the skills can play rugby, like in western countries and others.

And they have big blokes in sevens too, just not many front rowers, well props.

vickery's weight is exaggerated, being 125 and 6'3 is actually not bad, basically the weight and height of most fijian and samoan flankers..nah in recent years only one prop played 7's for fiji, peni ravai.. but he is more of a prop cum hooker cum centre cum winger..

You do realise that Ireland did as well as Fiji in the first Sevens world cup making the semi finals imagine if we had taken it seriously then :P
Anyhow I enjoy 7's and watch the highlights of all the tournaments, I hope Conroy is ok for next week as he is our Perry baker.
