2018 Program Information

The Tasmanian U17 Boys Sevens team will contest the National Championships in Brisbane from Thursday 6th December – Sunday 9th December. The team will play at Ballymore and will stay at Nudgee College.

This is the first time Tasmanian teams have been able to enter the National Youth 7s Champs and it is a very exciting time for youth rugby in Tasmania. The Australian Youth 7s teams are selected from this tournament so there is a clear pathway for our talented local boys.
