    Rugby X

    5 a side Rugby...,,,

    The inaugural 'Rugby X' tournament will feature a host of Olympic medallists after England, Ireland, USA and France all signed up for the international five-a-side event at London's 02 Arena.

    The four countries will all enter men and women's teams on 29 October, with Argentina entering just a men's side.

    Tournament organisers are talking to the Barbarians about taking the sixth spot in the men's competition.

    There will be four teams in the women's event.

    All athletes across the men's and women's competition will be paid the same fee for taking part.
    "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

    Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"
