USA TIGERS, Trinidad and Tobago, Glasgow Warriors and Clermont Auvergne will provide the international flavour at this year’s Melrose Sevens on April 12.
The line-up for the event was announced this week and will also include Scottish clubs Gala, Hawick, Jed-Forest, Kelso, Langholm, Peebles, Selkirk, Ayr, Boroughmuir, Currie, Heriots, Watsonians, Aberdeen GSFP, Dundee HSFP, Glasgow Hawks, Howe of Fife, Edinburgh Academicals, Stewart’s Melville, Stirling County and hosts Melrose.
Sevens convener, Ian Cooper, said: “With Clermont Auvergne eager to improve on their runner-up position of 2013, together with USA Tigers and Glasgow Warriors, I feel that any one of a dozen sides is capable of winning this year’s tournament.
“Add to that the unknown quantity of Trinidad and Tobago and I believe we can look forward to yet another outstanding afternoon of top quality sevens rugby.”
Aberdeen Asset Management will continue as main sponsor for the 2014 event.
