Rugby Sevens to make a Debut in Youth Olympics

IRB Chairman Bernard Lapasset and the President of the International Olympic Committee Jacques Rogge are really prospective about the inclusion of the rugby sevens at the youth Olympic Games to be held at Nanjing in 2014.

After this, it will be officially introduced at the Rio Olympics in 2016. With such an approach they think that not only rugby sevens but rugby as a sport will gain more popularity among the youth. This will also give an opportunity to all those aspiring rugby players and fresh stars-to-be in rugby to show their skills and get their career rolling.
