Monday, 11 April 2016 00:18

#DontSayWeNeverJio - World Rugby stars, Sonny Bill Williams (New Zealand) and Carlin Isles (USA) are coming down to Singapore later today, 11th April 2016, to rock, ruck and rumble for the Singapore-leg of the inaugural Singapore Rugby Sevens which is happening on 16-17th April. Read more to find out more where to catch them when they land and the draw for the this weekend's games.

World Rugby poster boy and champion, Sonny Bill Williams (SBW) and the world's fastest rugby player, Carlin Isles (watch the video here) will be in town this whole week in preparations for the Singapore Rugby 7s happening over the weekend. SBW further cemented his all-star status when he gave away his World Cup medal to a young kid who broke past security to get to him for a hug after the final of the Rugby World Cup.

Isles on the other hand, has a personal best of 10.13sec for his 100m sprint (holy sh*t!) which, had he been there, would qualify him for the semi-final of the Olympics in London 2012.

The Draw for this week’s HSBC World Rugby Singapore Sevens has been announced following the conclusion of the Hong Kong Sevens won by Fiji, who overcame New Zealand 21-7. In other news, Japan has won promotion to be a core team of next year’s World Sevens Series
