Rugby Sevens venue for Rio 2016

The Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 will see the debut of Rugby Sevens as an official sport in the Games and it is expected a decision as to where the events will be held will be made when the governing bodies meet next month. The venue for the hockey events for the Olympic Games will also be discussed, according Leonardo Gryner, the chief operating officer.

London Welsh make three changes

Aviva Premiership Rugby Football Union club the London Welsh will be heading to play against the Exeter Chiefs as they look to secure an all important win so as to create a buffer between them and the drop zone, which they are perilously close to following last weekend’s narrow defeat at the hands of relegation threatened Sale Sharks.

And going into the match, Lyn Jones, the Director of Rugby of the club has made three changes for the trip, hoping to put an end to the slump that has seen them dragged into the relegation dog fight.
