Nelson Mandela Bay stands a good chance of extending its contract to host the IRB Sevens Rugby tournament over the next four years.

This is according to the chief executive of Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium operators Access Management, Chantal du Pisani, who said she was quietly confident the Bay could get the nod from the South African Rugby Union.

The decision will be made at a Saru executive committee meeting on Monday.

The City of Cape Town is also in the running to host the tournament and is said to have entered a very competitive bid, according to Du Pisani.
