Personally I prefer Rugby 4s....

But seriously, this looks kinda interesting. I mean, I’d enjoy watching it in a stadium but it’d be super gimmicky. The only way I see it having any kind of success is if the field is the same size as arena football, then they can actually have it played here. I don’t see it becoming a format that anyone plays outside of this tournament or with your friends.

Sounds like it will be a smaller pitch like AFL. They mentioned the O2 in London.

How about 7s on a Basketball court...you know...a concept that flopped.

Rugby has naming problems. XRugby is another thing and already World Rugby approved: http://laws.worldrugby.org/en/xrugby

Pretty sure that it's been designed specifically for arena play.

I'll wait and see what this look like. I'm not overly sure about it though.
