    Brisbane Global Tens 2017: International Super Rugby club competition set for Suncorp

    Super Rugby's global tens tournament will be officially launched next month, with the last remaining contracts to be signed soon. The two-day, 10-a-side tournament, billed as the Brisbane Global 10s, will be staged at Suncorp Stadium on February 11 and 12 after Duco Events secured multimillion-dollar Brisbane City Council and Queensland government funding for the next four years. The event will feature 500 players, 14 teams from six countries, $1.55million in appearance fees and prizemoney and is expected to be broadcast in 20 different markets, including France and Sky Sports UK.

    It is understood the five New Zealand and five Australian Super Rugby teams have signed contracts, as have Samoa, who have their Prime Minister's backing, and Robbie Deans-coached Panasonic Wild Knights who have won the past three Japanese Top League titles. South Africa's Bulls, three-time Super Rugby champions, and French powerhouse Toulon, who boast Ma'a Nonu, Bryan Habana, Matt Giteau, James O'Connor, Duane Vermeulen and Leigh Halfpenny among others, are likely to be the last two teams.

    Duco Events also organises the NRL Auckland Nines.

    So we already have 4 Innforcers on board (possibly 5) so it would count as a tour would it not?

    Fly to Sydney for the 7's and then a road trip to Brisbane for the 10's.

    The Brisbane Global Tens is locked in for the next four seasons, starting on February 11-12 next year.

    It is the brainchild of New Zealand promoters Duco Events, who secured strong government funding and support in Queensland for the ambitious venture.

    The tens format is being talked up as the perfect hybrid between the fast and furious rugby sevens, and the more pure elements of the full version of the code.

    “The set pieces will be genuine contests and with only ten players on the field there is a lot more space to attack,” said former Wallabies boss and current Panasonic coach Robbie Deans, who will have Berrick Barnes among his touring party.

    “You could argue that this will be the biggest gathering of world class rugby players in one city in the history of the game.”
