Although the Netherlands isn’t quite renowned as an international rugby nation, Rugby Sevens, a fast-paced seven-a-side variant of the sport, has become immensely popular with young Dutch sportsmen and women. Not only does the game utilise fewer players than regular 15-a-side rugby, the matches are shorter, and the emphasis is on speed, sharp passing and breakaways, resulting in games that are typically high scoring, exciting affairs. It typically takes place in May.
