An attractive tradition in rugby is the putting together of invitation teams for tournaments or individual matches. These teams are made up of «invited» players from other clubs, who change from former opponents into team companions, for a limited period of time. In rugby sevens this practice is particularly common. The 7 SIRS itself is an «international invitational team».
To name just a few of former and actual "Sirs" (players and coaches): Brendan Williams (AUS), Scott Palmer (NZL), Billy Ngawini (NZL), Niccolò Fadalti (ITA), William Ryder (FIJ), Benjamin de Jager (RSA), Nick Thomson (NZL), Durandt Gerber (RSA), Troy Nathan (NZL), Jono Edwards (AUS), Carl Manu (SAM), Federico Zani (ITA), Carlos Stodart (ARG), Luca Martin (ITA), Craig Green (NZL), Steven Bortolussi (AUS), Niccolo' Badocchi (ITA), JJ Murray (ENG), Bruce Colvine (SCO), Tom Ailes (ENG), Adrian Curry (NZL), Michele Nitoglia (ITA), Roos Dewet (AUS), Danjuma Mshelia (NGR), ... and many, many more, all part of the big 7 Sirs family!
