Team GB Unveil Strange Looking Sevens Jersey Ahead Of Olympics

Rugby Sevens will be taking centre stage at the Olympics.

Although rugby sevens generally plays second fiddle to the 15 aside game, this summer sees the shortened version of the sport take centre stage during the Olympic Games in Rio.

While World Rugby see the Olympics as a way of further promoting sevens, the southern hemisphere nations in particular are taking the tournament very seriously, introducing players such as Sonny Bill Williams, Quade Cooper and Bryan Habana into their respective sevens squads.

Indeed, over the last number of weeks, there has been much speculation as to what 15 aside players would be incorporated into Team GB’s sevens squad, with names such as Joe Simpson, Danny Cipriani, Christian Wade, Stuart Hogg, George North and Justin Tipuric all being mentioned.

However, despite numerous reports and suggestions, it is not yet known who will be included in Simon Amor’s squad.

Nevertheless, the build up continued today, when Team GB unveiled their Olympic jersey. However, despite employing Stella McCarthey to design the shirts, fans are divided over the final product.
