SINGAPORE - The early bird discount for the HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens in April has been extended to Jan 21.

Rugby fans can enjoy a 20 per cent discount across all ticket categories. Premium ticket holders can catch the two-day action at discounted price of $176, while prices start from $96 for families with two children under 18.

This year's edition will be held from April 28 to 29 at the National Stadium.

The tournament will again see the 16 teams - Argentina, Australia, Canada, England, Fiji, France, Kenya, New Zealand, Russia, Samoa, Scotland, South Africa, Spain, Japan, USA and Wales - battle it out over 45 games across two days of competition.
