Big-bucks Sevens action live on the box



With a R1-million first prize and some of the fastest speedsters in the business, this week’s inaugural NBM Sevens tournament in George, beginning on Friday, is ideal festive season television fare.

All 34 matches will be broadcast live on SuperSport 6, with the first match at 11am on Friday between the NBM All Stars and Boland.

Top players litter each team, among them Raymond Rhule, England Sevens stalwart Ben Gollings, Sarel Pretorius, Derrick Minnie, Jongi Nokwe and Breyton Paulse.

A dozen sides, including representatives of the Blue Bulls, Cheetahs, Lions and Western Province, will vie for the biggest prize in Sevens rugby.

In an intriguing twist, a team bearing the famous Kaizer Chiefs football strip will also challenge the old order. Coached by Gcobani Bobo and managed by Makhaya Ntini, Chiefs’ members include Breyton Paulse and Adi Jacobs.

The first dozen matches will be broadcast on Friday.

Saturday’s play, beginning at 2pm, will culminate with the final at 6pm.
