Having blazed into action in February 2017 at Suncorp Stadium, the Brisbane Global Rugby Tens will be back even bigger and better in 2018.
Set for February 9 and 10, 2018, the tournament switches to a day-night format over Friday and Saturday evenings. The switch provides travelling fans with the perfect chance to make the most of a quick getaway to Brisbane - check out all the city has to offer in the mornings and then set off to Suncorp in the afternoon for a brilliant session of top class, thrilling rugby action.
Next year's tournament again features all of the Australian and New Zealand Super Rugby clubs plus All Blacks-laden French Top 14 newcomers Pau, the mighty Olympic Sevens champions Fiji, as well as hard-hitting Samoa and the hugely popular Panasonic Wild Knights of Japan.
The star-packed teams will compete over two days in a ten-players-per-side, ten-minutes per-half, knockout tournament.
All Blacks wing Julian Savea, former All Blacks loosie Liam Messam and Wallabies stars Kurtley Beale and Karmichael Hunt, along with Pou star Conrad Smith are the big names already confirmed for 2018.
Combining the space and speed of sevens with the trademark physicality, athleticism and tactical element of traditional fifteen-a-side rugby, the tens format showcases the game at its dynamic best, re-engaging core fans and introducing the game to new audiences via a compelling and easily accessible format.
Representing the ultimate in sports entertainment, with compelling action both on and off the field, the Brisbane Global Rugby Tens is a truly immersive event experience that no rugby fan should miss.
