ULTRA Sevens Rugby, a new form of the abbreviated code will be played in Fiji at the end of the year.

A statement on the Fiji Rugby Union website said Fiji will play host to an Ultra Sevens game on December 22 on Koro Island.

The statement further stated that the match will feature the Nacamaki and Tuatua rugby clubs, playing in the beautiful back drop of the world renowned Koro Island.

"We are very pleased that the next Ultra Sevens game will be played in Fiji, a recognized power in sevens rugby," Karl Fix, lead organizer of Ultra Sevens Rugby, told fijirugby.com.

Ultra Sevens Rugby is a modified version of sevens rugby using the established laws of the game, while introducing North American flavour, making for exciting, high scoring, first time viewer-friendly entertainment.

The game is played in four 15 minute quarters with a 10 minute half time break. There is also a five minute break between quarters and active substitutions like in basketball and ice hockey. There are also two referees to manage this fast moving game.
