Hong Kong and Singapore Sevens Postponed

first_img Hong Kong and Singapore Sevens PostponedThe Hong Kong and Singapore legs of the World Sevens Series have been postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak.The 45th edition of the Hong Kong Sevens was due to take place on 3-5 April with the Singapore tournament being held a week later, but these will both now be staged in October because of health concerns relating to the outbreak.The Singapore Sevens will take place on 10-11 October with the Hong Kong event, which will see the Women’s Series staged there alongside the men’s for the first time, completing the 2020 series on 16-18 October.The anti-government protests in the region had already led to speculation that the sevens might not take place. Now fears over the coronavirus, which already has a death toll of more than 1,000 people, have led to the decision to postpone the event.A World Rugby statement said: “The health and safety of our players, fans and everyone working on the event is always our highest priority.“This prudent decision has been taken in order to help protect the global rugby community and the wider public and was taken based on the World Health Organisation and relevant public authority travel and health guidelines. The decision is fully supported by stakeholders, including unions and commercial partners.”World Rugby are yet to confirm the schedule for the 2020-21 series, either men’s and women’s, other than to say that the Hong Kong and Singapore events will take place in April next year as usual. However, the postponement of this season’s Hong Kong event until October could create a problem in terms of the women’s schedule. Sevens events due to be held in April will now take place in October because of coronavirus outbreak LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The March issue of Rugby World magazine – a Six Nations special – is on sale now.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.center_img This season’s Women’s Series started with the Glendale event in the USA at the start of October, so if that schedule remains the same for 2020-21 it could be the case that they start the next series before completing this season’s.A World Rugby spokeswoman said: “This is a unique, dynamic and complex situation. We are working through the scheduling for the 2021 series in partnership with our key stakeholders as is normal practice and more details on the 2021 schedule will be shared in due course.”If you have purchased tickets for the Hong Kong and Singapore Sevens you will have your tickets honoured for the rescheduled events or if you can’t attend the new dates a full refund will be provided.

Nigel Owens strikes chord with call for change in substitutions

first_imgWednesday Jan 22, 2020 Nigel Owens strikes chord with call for change in substitutions Referee Nigel Owens’ suggestion to limit the number of substitutions in a match has proven to be a popular change to the laws amongst the rugby world.ADVERTISEMENTSpeaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, the Welshman posited the idea that fewer substitutions would encourage smaller players that are capable of playing 80 minutes.World Rugby is always seeking to make the game safer, particularly in reducing head injuries and concussions, and a number of law amendments have been implemented to achieve this.This suggestion by Owens is one that has been discussed over the years by players, fans and those that can affect such changes, and is one that does not directly change the laws of the game in open play.However, over the past decades, rugby has progressively gone the other way, increasing the number of permitted substitutions. There may not be a correlation, but the average weight of players has significantly increased as well.ADVERTISEMENTWith teams currently allowed to make eight substitutions, it means that half the starting XV are unlikely to play the entirety of the match. As a result, the belief is that this leads to bigger players and therefore bigger collisions throughout a match.Moreover, it has also been highlighted that more substitutions mean that there are more encounters between fresh players and those that are fatigued, which can also lead to more injuries.ADVERTISEMENTReducing the bulk of players is vital to the current and future health of players. I’ve been banging on about the number of subs since the 2015 RWC. Less subs to me means leaner more aerobically fit players. This idea has come of age.— Ian James 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🇬🇧🇪🇺 (@idjamesesq) January 22, 2020Still have a bench of 7-8 but can only use 3. All players will need to be able to run for 80mins. More gaps, more tries from tired bodies. Lower level can still use 5 subs etc to keep player No up— Gavin Roper (@GavinRoper) January 22, 2020This potential change to the laws is not universally supported, however, as some feel that the changes in size and strength of the players will be negligible, and worse still, the more tired they become the more sloppy their technique will be, which can also cause injuries.Limiting the number of subs so that forwards have to be able to last a game and therefore bulk down must be a big factor. Flying off feet into rucks is another although if the laws were applied to stop teams flopping over the ball (Exeter!) that would help.— huw thomas (@huwjpthomas) January 22, 2020Subs only used for injuries, not tactics. Players will be conditioned for 80 minutes instead of 45-55 minute juggernauts. Bring back rucking. 1 on 1 clear out only for jackaling— Gavin Diamond (@gavrdiamond) January 22, 2020Just like the new 50:22 law that is being trialed in various parts of the world, it is hard to judge whether any ideas will be successful unless they are tried.There are other areas of the game which could be also addressed, chiefly regarding rucking, but Owens has touched upon something which seems to already have a lot of support.Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
