The second '7s in the City' all-female Sevens tournament takes place at Dubarry Park, Athlone, on Saturday, June 6. Last year's inaugural event, organised and run in the main by Buccaneers Women's squad, proved very successful and highly promising for further development.
IRFU Women's Rugby Ambassador Fiona Coghlan played in three Rugby World Cups and captained Ireland to Grand Slam glory. She believes the 2017 Women's World Cup in Ireland will be a 'hugely successful and exciting' tournament.
Thrilled that the 2017 Women's Rugby World Cup will be held on home soil, Ireland head coach Tom Tierney says there will be 'a lot of planning from a coaching and player point of view so that we give it our best shot and leave everything out on the field in 2017'.
