Samurai Rugby played a huge part in developing and supporing the growth of Womens' sevens in the UK. Without a doubt, playing for Samurai Rugby ignited my love for the game of 7s. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities and good times I have had wearing a Samurai shirt.

As one of the leading invitational 7s teams in the world, Samurai Rugby provides fantastic 7s development experiences, assisting players & coaches alike as they progress on their pathway to the 7s international stage. England 7s have been very pleased with their association with Samurai Rugby.

Player, England 7s & 15s

Experiencing World-class coaching accelerated my personal development on the pitch which led on to greater international honours. The values I learned from playing for Samurai Rugby have moulded the player I am today both on and off the pitch. Some of my best rugby memories are playing in a Samurai shirt.

James Murphy

Player, South Africa 7s

Samurai...very few will understand a family bond like this. I was fortunate enough to make my debut for Samurai Rugby at the Independence 7s (Nigeria) in 2017, where I was privileged enough to share the field with 7s legends Pedro Leal and Humphrey Kayange, as well as a few others! This incredible family has been an amazing platform for my 7s career and is definitely one of my highlights to date. And best of all I am still in contact with most of my team mates, and will hopefully be seeing some of them in Hong Kong (2018 World Series).

Luke Treharne

Player, Wales & Team GB 7s

Samurai completely capture the spirit of rugby sevens, they are hugely competitive at the top level but still make it fun to be involved.

Tim Walsh

Head Coach, Australia 7s

Without the opportunities Samurai gave me I would not being enjoying the 7s career I am now fortunate enough to be living. To play with the world’s best, to be coached by the world’s best and now to coach the world’s best delivered me an array of skills, experiences and deep understanding of 7s and people that I will cherish forever. ​ The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership. I have been a beneficiary of Samurai’s leadership.

Ben Ryan

Olympic & Gold World Medal Winning Coach

Samurai were a great vehicle for me in my tenure as England 7s coach as they allowed me to see players that were on the pathway, give game time to developing and current players and coaches, and finally, let me as a coach gain more experiences. Super professional, they understand the key traits needed to make the step up to international sevens and provided me with a very valuable resource that really enhanced all we were trying to do with the National team.
