Nederlandse Sevens Kampioenen 2011

Dutch 7s Championship. Haagsche, Amsterdam AC, Hilversum

A lot of fast and hard rugby was played Sunday 15th May during the final day of Dutch Sevens Championships. Up for grabs were the championships title for the Colts, Ladies and Mens teams.

The Colts was fought between Haagsche RC and the Dukes, with Den Haag having a convincing win of 26 – 7 over the Dukes.

The Ladies was a repeat battle from 2010, again it was Tilburg v Amsterdam AC. Amsterdam winning the title with a score of 38 against Tilburg’s 7. These two teams appear to be at a constant head-to-head as they also faced each other in the Dutch National Championship just last month.

OK when it came to the Mens final this was a Sevens match not to be missed. A nail biting match between Hilversum and Eemland, difficult to know which way the game was going to go, many high-speed runs  which got the supporters going, and quite a few heavy clashes between the teams. The result at the end of time was a draw of 24-24.  Extra time of 5 minuets each way was allocated but with sudden death, so the first team to score wins.

Four minutes into the first half of extra time, Hilversum breaks through a strong Emland defense and manages to score the winning try, End result: Hilversum 29 v 24 Eemland.
