Luckily the 7's doesn't have a huge effect on the main game, it's played mostly off/holiday season and per venue within a few days so it doesn't have much too detrimental effect on rep / club games.

With only 7 a side it develops the running and passing games which is directly applicable (and often lacking) to the full game - in other words unlike T20 cricket (swing/bash every ball) it both develops good habits and doesn't inspire habits that are bad/wrong for other formats of the game.

I also believe the ownership structure helps: not luring players away from the traditional game with stupid money (or they play traditional below full effort to avoid injury and for big-name players shirk all but a token few club games.) Not to say they don't get paid, but it's in line with the usual games.
Then again that ownership model is probably the first thing that will change in the next few years. (They all promise not to, but end of the day money always talks loudest.)
Signature ready for installation. Please Reboot now.
