CG Sevens Rugby scoreboard falls & smashes

The Commonwealth Games Rugby Sevens has been dealt a blow after a giant scoreboard at the venue for the Sevens crashed to the ground.

The smashed scoreboard is just the latest embarrassing mishap to hit the troubled sports event.

According to AFP a chain support gave way at one corner of the massive temporary scoreboard at the Delhi University ground, sending the left-hand side pivoting downward, smashing the bottom left of the screen into the ground and the bottom right into the iron support frame.

Commonwealth Games Rugby Sevens competition manager Kevin Culliver said it was lucky that it “happened when no spectators were around”.

The two-day sevens tournament takes place on Monday and Tuesday.

The Delhi Games have suffered numerous construction and technical problems.
