Turner to star in Sevens again?
England Sevens rugby player Matthew Turner may be one of the stars of the Marriott London Rugby Sevens tournament this weekend (May 12th-13th).
Former Bristol wing Turner has been shortlisted for the IRB International Sevens Player of the Year award, with his recent exploits including eight tries in six games in last weekend's Glasgow Sevens and 33 in all so far this season.
Commenting on his nomination, Turner said: "It's a real honour to be nominated and to be held in that regard by your peers."
Fans can enjoy corporate hospitality packages at the event, which will see the hosts take on the USA, France and Samoa in poll B on the first day.
They will hope to go one better than in Glasgow, where they lost the final 29-14 to New Zealand.
This year's event will have a 70s musical theme and many fans will be present in flares and platform shoes.
