Ireland Sevens Squads Ready For Big Weekend In LA

Ireland Sevens Squads Ready For Big Weekend In LA

Ireland's Lucy Rock (nee Mulhall) and Harry McNulty joined their fellow captains to launch the Los Angeles leg of this season's HSBC SVNS Series

The Ireland Sevens squads (sponsored by TritonLake) are back in HSBC SVNS Series action in Los Angeles this weekend.

The Ireland Men battled to a fifth place finish in Vancouver last week, edging out Fiji in a thrilling play-off match to carry momentum into the fifth leg of this season’s Series at Dignity Health Sports Park, the home of LA Galaxy.

James Topping’s side are currently second in the overall standings, and will be hoping for another strong performance this weekend as they get their LA 7s campaign under way against South Africa on Saturday (kick-off 3.38am Irish time).

Captain Harry McNulty and his team-mates will continue the pool stages against Spain (kick-off 6.14pm Irish time) and SVNS Series leaders Argentina (11.06pm Irish time), later on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Ireland Women will be determined to put a disappointing ninth place finish in Vancouver behind them, as Allan Temple Jones‘ charges aim to reignite the form that saw them claim a historic first Series title in Perth in January.

Currently sixth in the overall standings, Ireland are first in action on Saturday as they go head-to-head with SVNS Series leaders Australia (kick-off 12.30am Irish time), before meeting France (8.04pm Irish time) and Japan (12.18am Irish time).

You can watch all of the HSBC SVNS Series matches for free on RugbyPass TV, while there will be coverage of Ireland’s progress in California across the new @Ireland7s social media channels, and in our Ireland Sevens hub.
