The third episode of the ‘On The Road with the Ireland 7s’ series is now live. We went behind the scenes with the Ireland Men’s Sevens squad in Hong Kong, as they sought to qualify for the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.
From recovering from jet-lag after the long journey to Hong Kong, to adjusting to the warm weather and having the privilege of pulling on the green jersey, we hear from the players as they pursue their dream.
At an incredible tournament, with an unrivalled atmosphere in the Hong Kong Stadium, follow the fortunes of the team throughout the weekend – on the pitch, in the changing room, managing their recovery – and how they will deal with the results.
A fingertip away from a final, and an experience none of Anthony Eddy’s side will forget.
