    England broke a 7's record today by becoming the first northern hemisphere team to win a hat-trick of hong kong 7's. The tournament, which is regarded as the jewel in the irb 7's crown, has only seen this feat happen twice before: by fiji and new zealand.

    If any of you've been to the hong kong 7's, you'll know what i mean when i say the south stand was absa-fvcking-lotely amazing, the atmosphere was something else. The win will see england top the charts as they beat argentina 22-12 in the final, and as the tournament is double points they'll leapfrog the kiwis who went out in the semi's to the losing finalists.

    I'm really too tired and pissed to write much more, i think i've done pretty well uptil now, so i leave you with word of the tournament (god knows where it came from):

    brouhaha

    hong kong 7's is an international rugby tourney. it's exactly the same rules as rugby union, except it's 7 a side with halves of 7 minutes (except finals which are 10 minutes each way).

    england's richard haughton won 'best and fairest player' and top try scorer with 8, and team mate ben gollings won top points scorer and most conversions made.
