Historic Denver Test match to clash with rugby union tournament just down the road

The historic England versus New Zealand rugby league Test at the Mile High Stadium in Denver will clash directly with a rugby union 7’s tournament just twenty minutes’ drive down the road.

Officials are expecting a crowd of around 30,000 for the International but it would be have been even sweeter to see many local rugby union players and fans attending the Test match with the chance of converting them to the rival code.

England versus the Kiwis kicks off at 2.10pm local time while the Barbarians Sevens Rugby Tournament runs throughout the day.

“The Barbarian Sevens Rugby Tournament is one of three Frontier Club Sevens Regional tournaments that will determine, over the course of the Series, the three teams that will represent the Frontier Region at the 2018 USA Rugby Emirates Airline Men’S Club 7s National Championships,” the Denver Barbarians website reads.
