    Hundreds of young Kiwi athletes have put their hand up to be the next big thing in sevens


    New Zealand Rugby has received over 300 applications of both men and women
    for their Ignite7s programme, which will test a selected number of applicants
    to see if they have what it takes to perform at an international level.

    NZR Head of High Performance Mike Anthony says they are hoping the applicants
    keep coming.

    But he says they are happy to have as many as they do after just two weeks.

    Applications close August 26th.
