World Tens Series ensures Player Welfare
Chief Executive Officer, Pacific Rugby Players
“We have worked closely with the WTS organization as they have developed and put in place their policies for player welfare, structures, laws, governance, and COVID protocols. As a Player Association, it’s great to see these player welfare aspects are developed in the fabric of such anew exciting competition, and not just an afterthought. This is particularly timely, and very welcome, with the impact COVID has had on countless players career’s and livelihoods, and contracts being reduced and cancelled on a daily basis across the rugby world. So this is a great opportunity for not only our 7s and XVs Pacific Island players, but also so many from across the world to gain a contract in one of the new teams. Any well planned and player welfare focused initiatives which offer players opportunities are welcomed and supported.”
Former England 7s player
– Players want to play in World Tens Series
“I am really excited about this new Series. The Tens format will bring 7s and XVs players together on the same pitch – and will be a real feast for sports fans. I know there are a lot of players who have committed themselves to be in the player pool and hope to be selected by one of the new Team Ownership groups. If the opportunity presents itself Bermuda will be a real hit.”
Why is Rugby Tens unique?
Rugby Tens is a form of rugby fit for all shapes and sizes. Players and fans can look forward to fast paced action with the tactics of rugby 15’s combined with the speed of 7’s.
Ten a-side rugby, ten minutes a half and a two minute half time break ensures plenty of entertainment and the conversion jeopardy rule adds interest to the game with points being awarded based on the zone where the kicker takes the kick from.
There will never be a drawn match with matchplay shootouts on the cards if a game is level at the final whistle.
Rugby Tens is next level rugby for the fans which the rugby world has been waiting for.
