An ideal refuge from all the mayhem
with Judy Ngao and Robby Nimmo
The Sevens Village proved a welcome refuge from the madness of the stadium. And this year, a Toys 'R' Us games zone was set up for those dragging little ones along. 'We weren't sure they would like the rugby, so we brought them here first. Probably next year we'll take them there,' says Frenchman Alain Huy, whose five-year-old Leo and three-year-old Oscar were tearing up the playground. 'We had tickets, but didn't go,' said wife Sonya. 'The stadium is too loud and too wild.' But when will they be introduced to the true Sevens spirit? 'As late as possible,' Sonya said.
