Why Shredded Ducks 7s
The Shredded Ducks (SD7s) is not just something you order from the local Chinese Take away. They are one of the UK’s fastest growing Rugby 7s sides. The side originates from Bristol, UK but has players representing the team from all over the world. The SD7s was formed by a group of friends, players from a number of Rugby Union sides in England. Initially the side entered a number of local 7s tournaments in the South West of England. Their success within the local tournaments rapidly boosted their profile within the 7s community. Fast forward 3 years and the small group of friends have quickly become known nationally having being crowned England Rugby’s 247s National Sevens champions in the summer of 2018. The team is growing from strength to strength not only on the field but off it too. As fast as they’re being recognised for their rugby ability they’re also becoming known for their fun, tongue in cheek humour on social media in the lead up, during and post tournaments. The Ducks’ focus is now firmly on the 2019 season where new challenges await. The SD7s are flying into bigger ponds having recently accepted an invitation to the Elite Tournament at the internationally recognised Bournemouth 7s Festival. As well as this they have been recognised and awarded a place to compete within the country’s Super Sevens Series, where they will compete against teams such as the British Army, Jamaica and England Students. Before the flock fluffs it’s feathers and embarks on the long migration into the 2019 season we need some support to get us airborne. We are looking for businesses or individuals to join the Ducks on this journey and show their support by pledging sponsorship donations to the side. These contributions will support and facilitate the squad of ducklings to compete at these new heights and build on their historic success.
