Organisers of the glitzy new Brisbane Global Tens are hopeful it will give Super Rugby the high-profile summer springboard it has long needed.Around 300 of world rugbys biggest names will descend upon Suncorp Stadium in February next year for the two-day, 10-a-side carnival.Fourteen clubs from around the world will be involved - the 10 Australian and New Zealand Super Rugby franchises, plus South Africas Blue Bulls, Japans Panasonic Wild Knights, the Samoan national team and French glamour club Toulon.All sides will be contractually obligated to bring their biggest names.It makes a statement, it says bang - rugbys back this year, get involved, former Wallabies captain Nathan Sharpe said.The Tens competition is the brainchild of New Zealand promoters Duco Events, who secured Queensland government funding and support for the venture.Duco are also organisers of the Auckland Nines rugby league tournament.The format is being talked up as the perfect hybrid between the lively rugby sevens and the more pure elements of the 15-a-side game.The set pieces will be genuine contests and with only ten players on the field there is a lot more space to attack, said ex-Wallabies and current Panasonic boss Robbie Deans, who will have Berrick Barnes among his touring party.Its a lot closer to the 15s than the sevens so all the front rowers are really biting at it, said Chiefs hooker Hikawera Elliot.With Super Rugby scheduled to begin a fortnight later, teams are expected to use the whole week as part of their pre-season preparations.Practice matches, training sessions and fan days all on the cards. Blues coach Tana Umaga said hed be using the prospect of playing in the competition as a little cherry for his players to work hard in pre-season.No-one usually looks forward to pre-season training so itll put a light at the end of the tunnel, and something for these guys to look forward to, Umaga said.We want to keep building throughout pre-season, make sure they get their confidence up early.Toulon, the closest thing world rugby has to Real Madrids Galacticos, loom as the tournaments biggest drawcard.Owned by maverick French comic book magnate Mourad Boudjellad, Toulon have made huge waves by signing the likes of Matt Giteau, Maa Nonu and Leigh Halfpenny.Although the tournament is in the middle of the Top 14 season, Giteau said he was looking forward to getting involved.A lot of the guys, whether theyre French or Georgian or whatever, are always asking about what Australias like, Giteau said.Samoa coach Alama Ieremia was honoured to take part in the competition as the only national side involved.This is one of the highlights, to be invited to a professional tournament that has Super Rugby teams, Ieremia said.Its an opportunity for us to showcase what we have on the island.BRISBANE GLOBAL TENS AT A GLANCE* Suncorp Stadium, 11-12 February 2017* 14 teams - Reds, Waratahs, Brumbies, Force, Rebels, Highlanders, Hurricanes, Chiefs, Blues, Crusaders, Blue Bulls, Panasonic Wild Knights, Samoa, Toulon* 10 players per side, unlimited interchanges* 10-minute halves, five-minute half-time* All conversion attempts must be drop-kicked within 40 seconds of try* Five-man scrums* Scoring team kicks off* Yellow card = three-minute sin-bin Air Max 97 Baratas Online .com) - Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer were easy first-round winners Tuesday at the Australian Open.

And after tipping wins for England and Northern Ireland on Friday, Nicholas expects both Wales and Republic of Ireland to record positive results in their pursuit of a place at the 2018 World Cup.Read on to get the views of the Soccer Saturday expert... Wales v Serbia (Saturday, 7.45pm, live on Sky Sports 1)Its a big bonus for Wales having Aaron Ramsey back. Anybody could see in the north London derby that his energy levels were great considering his injury problems. Gareth Bale and Wales host Serbia on Saturday Serbia are difficult though. Theyre a strong physical side that are dangerous on the counter-attack. Aleksandar Kolarov is their danger man going forward for me with his set-pieces.However, I think that Wales trio of Gareth Bale, who is in great form, Ramsey and Joe Allen, who is also doing well at Stoke, should see them throughCharlie predicts: 2-1 and Ramsey to score first (50/1 with Sky Bet) Wales vs Serbia November 12, 2016, 7:15pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Austria v Republic of Ireland (Saturday, 5pm, live on Sky Sports 1)This is a tough game, although the thing about Austria is theyre lacking a star name and you can frustrate them.ddddddddddddI always feel like Martin ONeill is an attacking manager that looks for weaknesses. The Republic of Ireland are strong defensively as well with Roy Keane instilling the discipline. Martin ONeill and the Republic of Ireland go to Austria A guy who doesnt impress me a lot of the time for his club but is great for his country is James McClean. He is that annoying player that just pops up at the back post and is always there to feed off the scraps.Wes Hoolahan is the one that has the quality though. Hes taken a long time to really be a big part of the Ireland set-up but is delivering on a regular basis now.Charlie predicts: 0-1 and Hoolahan to score (60/1 with Sky Bet) Austria vs Rep Ire November 12, 2016, 4:45pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Also See: No experience necessary!
