    Rugby-loving Olympic boss Jacques Rogge has said the sport’s shorter version, sevens, faces «an uphill battle» in its bid to gain a place at the Games.

    Rogge, who played rugby for Belgium, says the 15-a-side game has no chance of Olympics status and sevens faces stiff competition from other sports.

    He also told BBC Sport rugby union’s bosses should act to improve the sport.

    «It was a good World Cup in terms of the public attention, but I’m not happy about the quality of play,» he said.

    «I am passionate about rugby but I think that the game has to evolve to keep its appeal. Defence has taken precedence over attack.

    «(At the Rugby World Cup) play went from one maul, to another maul, to another maul, waiting for a penalty to be blown.

    «I think the law-makers have to think about making the game more open, probably by working on a quicker liberation of the ball in rucks.»
