Win tickets to Rugby X, O2 Arena London
Rugby X is a new, World Rugby-approved, high-speed format of the game, which will debut at the O2 arena on Tuesday 29 October.
Seen as Rugby’s answer to T20 cricket, the inaugural event features the world’s leading International Sevens rugby teams — England, France, Ireland, Argentina, USA, plus the Barbarians — playing full-contact rugby on a half-sized pitch, specially constructed at the O2.
With 10-minute matches and adapted rules to encourage fast and skilful gameplay, Rugby X will bring more tries, tackles and tricks than the game has seen before. For full event details and to purchase tickets, visit rugbyx.com.
To celebrate the launch of this exciting new format, the Evening Standard have five pairs of tickets to the afternoon game on Tuesday 29 October to give away.
