    Anyone watch any of this?
    I saw a couple of games. It was good looking football mainly because it looked nothing like Rugby and a lot more like League or at least League from the early 90s.
    In my opinion the basic aesthetics of the Sydney 7s attack were good because the ruck to backline passes were these long, deep crisp backline passes like Ricky Stuart use to throw back in the days before the easy hit ups took over.
    Having watched a lot of the old League games that Fox has been showing and comparing them with the more recent years one thing that looks ugly now is the flat attacks. The game is basically played forward of the ruck in the vacant 10 metre zone that the attack hasn't really earned yet. The flat attack looks trash to my eyes.

    I watched bit and pieces and I find it is good to watch, both mens and womens.

    It doesn't much resemble Rugby though, different game.

    You are both traitors.

    Also its rugby UNION not 'rugby'. Stop marginalising Rugby League.

    Nah, it’s Rugby Sevens. Basically a different sport to League or Union.
