2006 Possibles vs Probables Tournament
The Forum Sevens Possibles v Probables (PVP) tournament are trial matches and open to all all comers. In 2006, the PVP was adjusted to accomodate three teams with newcomers the 'Chuck Norris Texas Death Ninjas' competing against established F7s teams the Panthers and the Bluebags who have agreed to take part in the PVP.

The PVP is effectively a series of trial matches before the 2006 season kicks off.

This is the third PVP. The first PVP was staged in 2004 and concluded with a PVP Cup Final in 2005. The second PVP was staged in late 2005 and concluded in 2006.

The idea behind the PVP is to give teams an opportunity to show that they can field a full team and play at a level where they can compete in the full Forum Sevens competition of 2006.

The PVP also allows for new referees to gain experience prior to the 2006 season.

Win, lose or draw, the PVP teams with the best organisation will be considered when the invitations for the 2006 Forum Sevens competition are issued, early in the new year.

Main points
For the F7s Rules
CLICK HERE
1. Winning the PVP is not the main criteria to gaining an invitation into the F7s premiership, although it obviously helps.

2. Teams are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the rules. Playing by the rules and exhibiting good sportsmanship goes a long way to gaining an invitation into the F7s premiership.

3. Teams who are organised, compete well, and show an ability to to get a full compliment of players together for each match are more likely to gain an invitation into the F7s premiership.

2006 PVP rules
Standings are determined on a mini points ladder that adheres to the same rules as the F7s premiership ladder.

At the completion of the round robin, the two top performing teams will have the option to fight it out in the PVP final at a date to be agreed upon. The winner taking the PVP Cup, the loser taking the PVP Shield.

The third team that was knocked out during the round robin will get the PVP Plate (a prize for competing)

The referees
For these trials, there will be two referees for each match. The refs will post their marks independently of each other between full time and the following Saturday. They will do this without any comparing of notes beforehand. A match umpire will post the final totals in the match thread.

The totals will be added and divided by two (by an Admin) in order to get an average, this being the final total.
