(CNN)In 2015, high over the North Stand of Hong Kong Stadium, above the commentators and scorers booths, comedian Al Murray sipped from a bottle of water. It had been a pleasantly grueling few days at the Hong Kong Sevens.
Asked about the key to enjoying the tournament, he said: “You just have to hand yourself over and not worry about what time of day or night it might be.”
Two days later, high-spirited commentator Sean Maloney tweeted
of the Hong Kong Sevens: “It’s like fighting Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali on alternating nights for an entire week [sic].”
