Hemsworth club secretary Mark Wilson said: “This is a great opportunity for a club at this level to host such a high quality competition with many high class sevens teams from across Northern England competing.

“The club will be open all day, with no admission charges to the ground, so we invite the local community to come and enjoy this exciting rugby event.

“We will also be running a barbeque and mini beer festival with beers from local brewers, Hamelsword and Snaith breweries.”

The clubhouse will be open from 10am with the Australia v England match being shown on TV.

The first sevens game kicks off at 11am.
