The Women’s All Ireland Sevens competition kicks off tomorrow (Saturday) at Terenure College RFC with six of the All Ireland Women teams taking part.
I haven’t heard too much about this initiative, except from the clubs involved, but I suspect it’s intended to feed players from the clubs into the Ireland Women’s Sevens programme.
The tournament is currently scheduled to be played over three rounds with Round 1 kicking off at Terenure at 12:00. The second round is scheduled for the University of Limerick on 15th June, with the third and final round to be played on 22nd June at a venue still to be confirmed.
The six teams have been split onto two pools as follows.
|Pool A||Pool B|
|Railway Union||Old Belvedere|
With the following pool and knock-out matches taking place.
|Time||Team 1||Team 2|
|1||12:00||Blackrock College||v||Railway Union|
|4||13:30||UL Bohs||v||Old Belvedere|
|10||16:00||Loser 7||v||Loser 8|
|11||16:30||Winner 7||v||Winner 8|
*Teams will be ranked 1-3 within their pool after the completion of the pool games.
