Irish Rugby TV: Anthony Eddy On Ireland’s Hong Kong Mission

The Ireland Men's 7s Squad for Hong Kong

The Ireland Men’s Sevens squad are in Hong Kong this week for the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series qualifier. We spoke to Anthony Eddy on the eve of their departure about the challenges of the tournament and what they learned from last year’s agonising semi-final defeat.

Eddy’s men have been drawn in Pool F with Jamaica, Uruguay and European rivals Russia. They face Jamaica, the Rugby Americas North Sevens champions, first up on Friday (kick-off 12.38pm local time/5.38am Irish time), before playing Uruguay, the fourth-place finishers in the recent Sudamérica Rugby Sevens, at 3.43pm local time/8.43am Irish time.

The squad landed in Hong Kong on Monday and have been hard at work on the pitch and in the gym as they build up to the opening game.
