Rugby chiefs scrap fancy dress theme for London Sevens tournament

 Rugby’s London sevens tournament has traditionally been a riot of colour and fancy dress with spectators dressed up as anything from Darth Vadar to Buzz Lightyear.

However, next year’s event looks likely to be a more staid affair after rugby chiefs scrapped the fancy dress theme following complaints from Twickenham residents about unsocial behaviour.

The Rugby Football Union (RFU) said in a letter to local residents: “At the RFU we take our relationship with the local community very seriously.

“We listened to all the feedback and believe this is the right direction for next year’s tournament. We will promote the event as a family friendly rugby event across both days.”
