Breaking news………We are delighted to announce that The Belgium Barbarians Sevens side will be attending. This is a selection of players from Belgium, but open also to other nationalitiesand while you may not get to, or even want to, play them, you will certainly enjoy seeing them perform. So far in 2011 they have participated in the Geneva 7s (Switzerland), the Benidorm 7s (Spain) and the Pau 7s (France). They will play in August in Czech Republic, at the Praha 7s before heading to Canada to participate at our event in Montreal October 1st.
On the Belgium Barbarians prior three visits to Montreal, John Jones was their prime contact and sponsor and in recognition of Johns efforts to help establish Seven-a-Side Rugby in Quebec the Barbarians wanted to come back again and show support for the first 7’s Tournament in memory of John. We are glad to welcome them back to Quebec!
