The GURFC are always keen to play in as many Sevens tournaments come the end of the season and we have experienced an array of success from our Sevens set up in years gone by. Highlights from last year include reaching the final of our own tournament, the Viper 7’s, and winning the plate in the Cartha 7’s.
We tend to play in a variety of tournaments every year with a good mixture of club sides and university sides in each tournament. Whether playing under the name of Glasgow University or the Yellow Bellied Lizards, which is our name when playing more ‘social’ tournaments, we do aim to be as successful as possible.
We also hold our own Sevens tournament, after all our fifteen-a-side fixtures are done. Last year’s event was a huge success with an array of talent on show. The GURFC managed to finish runners up and the tournament was won by the Minevra Builders who are a side made of players from the top club sides in the west of Scotland. The event was held at New Anniesland and Viper Nightclub and Dragon Soop were our main sponsors. Details about this year’s tournament will be put here once everything has been confirmed.
