Speaking ahead of the group departing for Australia, IRFU Director of Rugby Sevens, Anthony Eddy, said: “This two-week camp is set to be a great experience for the girls. Australia are one of the best Sevens sides in the world, and having the opportunity to train and play against them over a two-week period gives us the chance to challenge ourselves before heading on to Sao Paulo.”

A 12-woman squad will depart Sydney for the Sao Paulo Sevens tournament on February 15.
