The World Club Sevens comes to Thomond Park
Fancy lining out for Fiji's famous Daveta club side or scoring a try for South Africa's Blue Bulls? Organisers of the Limerick World Club 7s event are offering 12 Irish-based rugby players the chance to play for one of the world-class club sides coming to Thomond Park for the very first Limerick World Club 7s event on August 9th and 10th.
Up to 100 Irish-based players will be selected to attend a trial event on Monday 4th August, just ahead of the main event.
The hopefuls will be put through their paces by a selection committee and 12 players will be selected to be part of the 'Combine Team' which will act as a substitute squad for all competing teams.
This is no pipe dream - last year at the World Club 7s event in Twickenham one of the members of the English Combine Team played for the ACT Brumbies in the final!

The inaugural Limerick World Club 7s Festival takes place at Thomond Park the weekend before this year's World Club 7s event in Twickenham with many of the same teams taking part in both, meaning that travelling fans will get four days of superb 7s in one week!

Pat Lam has primed his troops for 'the biggest game in Connacht's history' as they attempt to reach their first ever Champions Cup quarter-final. They must either win at Toulouse or at least ensure that the result sees them finishing ahead of the Frenchmen in the final pool table.
Ulster slumped to their fourth Champions Cup defeat of the season, a result which consigns them to the bottom of Pool 5, as visitors Bordeaux Bègles made the most of their scoring opportunities to win 26-22 at Kingspan Stadium.
Centre Stuart McCloskey was one of the few Ulster players to impress during their round 6 loss to Bordeaux Bègles
