Selects’ star-studded squad in Serevi 7s at Swangard
A field of eight led by Seattle-based Serevi Selects will battle out in the premier men’s event at the Serevi Vancouver International Rugby 7s tournament at Swangard Stadium next Saturday (July 21).
The selects will have two of the greatest all-time players in the sport in their lineup, Waisale Serevi of Fiji and guest player Ben Gollings of England. Gollings is the all-time points scorer in rugby 7s with 2,652 in 70 tournaments. Serevi used to have the record with 1,310 points.
In addition to the Selects, the Burnaby Lake Rugby Club’s Global Lighthouse team will be up against the Fiji Wardens, the Cayman Islands Maples, five-time U.S. champion OPSB of Seattle, Wings Fijian Select, South Seas (native players from Tonga and Samoa now living on Vancouver Island), and Edmonton.
