(MARKHAM, ON) - The 2017 Magnificent Sevens Rugby Festival presented by the Toronto Wolfpack took place this past weekend at Fletcher's Fields in Markham. With 82 teams across 10 divisions, the 2017 edition of the Magnificent Sevens was a huge success.
Rainy conditions did not put a damper on the players' spirits, as the two-day tournament included a strong display of the future and present of rugby sevens in Ontario. Provincial and National selectors were on hand during the event to take a look at the future talent on display, as well.
One field was streamed for both days of the event and you can re-watch the broadcast at Rugby Ontario's YouTube channel: youtube.com/c/RugbyOntarioTV.
