Ireland Women's Sevens coach Jon Skurr has announced a 12 woman squad for the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow (June 29th/30th).
Leinster backs Robert Kearney and Luke Fitzgerald have been called up to the Ireland squad for this week's mini training camp, as replacements for the injured John Kelly and Anthony Horgan.
The Munster pair of Kelly, who is suffering from an Achilles tendon injury, and Horgan, who has a hand injury, have both been forced to withdraw from the three-day Ireland get together.
Ireland coach Eddie O'Sullivan watched Kearney and Fitzgerald impress in Leinster's 16-9 Magners League win over Cardiff at Donnybrook on Saturday night.
Some neat footwork from Fitzgerald saw him field a high ball and cut inside the advancing Chris Czekaj for one particularly impressive break, while Kearney's all-round performance and industry marked him out as the man-of-the-match.
