    Free Rugby Sevens television coverage NOW ended.

    Now TV to show Sevens on dedicated channels | South China Morning Post

    Will streaming it from a tablet to tv be the answer? What's the quality usually like?

    I think they have now lost the rights to use the venues for the costs that they do, given their whole push to severely monetise every aspect of the game.

    Build your own stadium, spend your own money and run your outfit as you want.

    Not on tax payer expense please.

    They used to but NOW have taken over, so they will probably want a two year contract.

    I know there have been great improvements in the tournament over the years, but by 'going big' it lost its charm.

    Where is the "big" part? Its just expensive.
    I went for 10+ years and enjoyed it but for the last 7-8, whenever I've gotten my hands on tickets, I've scalped them.

    Its just not worth the $$$$ that I can get for tickets that I pickup.

    If some numskull is willing to pay me $3500-$4000 for a 3 day ticket, then who am I to refuse.

    I'll take my dosh, head to the hills and smile while I trapse around the grass with a spring in my step and extra bills in my pocket
