    Anyone notice the push of 10's?

    Is this to seperate the Sevens which is now an Olympic sport from World sevens to 10's?

    Coming up in February is the Brisbane Global 10s which has been locked in for the next 4 years and has 14 professional sides competing from,
    Australia: Queensland Reds, NSW Waratahs, ACT Brumbies, Western Force, Melbourne Rebels.
    New Zealand: Highlanders, Hurricanes, Chiefs, Blues, Crusaders,
    South Africa: Blue Bulls
    Japan: Panasonic Wild Knights
    Samoa,
    France: Toulon
    Rules are very similar to sevens including 10 players per side, unlimited interchanges, All conversion attempts must be drop-kicked within 40 seconds of try, Scoring team kicks off.
    Differences include 10-minute halves, five-minute half-time, Five-man scrums, Yellow card = three-minute sin-bin.

    In June we had the World Club 10s in Mauritius Clubs included,
    South Africa: Sharks,
    England: Saracens,
    France: Toulon,
    Australia: Brumbies, Force
    Combined, Barbarian sides: Africa Pacific Dragons, Euskadi, Italian All Stars

    Final: Force 7 d Brumbies 0

    Sounds like a super rugby warm up tournament

    They only reason I can think of, is that because there is already a Sevens circuit which is contested by national teams, they might be trying to differentiate the club game by concentrating on tens instead. Not that I'm complaining, I love tens.

    (Maybe the Olympics could be the tens tournament with national teams...)

    I don't think I've ever seen 10s. Maybe once years ago. But it seems like a better opportunity to warm up a full 15 aside squad. There will probably be more forwards picked than in sevens.
    Maybe 5 man scrums?

    This video is pretty indicative of tens, it shows how there are elements of XVs rugby mixed with sevens play
