      Rugby is a sport that brings out the best all around athletes demanding every element of speed, endurance, power, thinking, balance, the list goes on. However, the best thing it brings out is great friendships and deeper bonds than any sport. The 7's would make the olympics incredibly exciting and bring a group of millions of fans, players, supports that traditionally may not participate in the olympics.
