The German national team will be in attendance for the second year in a row at the International Pub Seven-a-Sides being held at Harpenden Rugby Club this Sunday.

At one stage it was hoped the Brazilian national team would also attend but they have dropped out at the last minute. However the British Army, with their complement of Fijian internationals, have a game plan that will be hard to stop.

There are 48 teams which have already committed to the competition which gets underway at 10.30am.

Chairman Darren Francy is looking forward to next year when the Harpenden event reaches its 50th birthday.
