Waisale Serevi was one of the few players to play both fifteens and sevens formats, the former taking him to play for clubs in England, France and Japan. While he played both formats, sevens rugby fanned his passion for the sport. Sevens play was also his gift -- one that he shared with the world until retiring from international play in 2009. Serevi-led teams captured three straight Melrose Cups at the Hong Kong Sevens from 1990-1992. Serevi went on to lead Fiji to two Rugby Sevens World Cup Championships in 1997 and 2005.
Ben Gollings, represented many English clubs throughout his Fifteens career, and enjoyed many successes along the way. He won the European Shield with Harlequins RFC and came runner up in the Tetley Bitter Cup. Ben went on the win the Tetley Bitter Cup later in his career when he played for Newcastle Falcons. Ben played in the European Cup and played just under 100 games in the Premiership between 1999-2004. England Sevens Team is accountable for the majority of Ben’s success and for which he is internationally acclaimed. He has been playing for the England Sevens Team since the 1999-2000 Series. Ben currently holds the World Record for Highest Points Scored overtaking the legend Waisale Serevi in 2005, and has won the prestigious Hong Kong tournament four times, being awarded most valuable player in 2006.
