Paddy O’Brien moves the Sevens caravan from Hong Kong to Singapore this weekend, club competitions in Europe are heading for a climax, Super Rugby rumbles on, there are two Under-18 international tournaments, and there are three finals in South Africa. There is lots to keep the referees away from mischief.

It is interesting to see how many nationalities are involved in top matches again this weekend.
