Samoa Sevens

The Samoa Sevens team, coached by New Zealand rugby legend Sir Gordon TietjensĀ trained at Hampton, ahead of the London Sevens.

In the less than temperate May climate, the squad made good use of the School’s all-weather 3G pitch as part of their final preparations for tomorrow’s London Sevens tournament, where they will be hoping to secure a place at the Rugby World Cup in San Francisco.

A large number of Hampton boys took full advantage of this rare opportunity to witness some world-class rugby from the touchline.

The Samoan athletes enjoyed the schoolboy applause and took time to take photos with the young fans at the end of their session.
