Ireland Sevens To Face England In Twickenham Tournament Opener

Ireland Sevens To Face England In Twickenham Tournament Opener
By Aonghus Ó Maicín Updated

After a stunning win in Hong Kong earlier this month, the Ireland Sevens side will return to the rugby pitch at the end of May for the HSBC London Sevens tournament.

The side performed exemplary at last year's tournament, earning a place on the podium when defeating England in the bronze medal match. Since then, the side's development has continued on a rapid rise

And when Anthony Eddy's men return to Twickenham over the weekend of May 25-26, they'll begin their campaign against the old foes across the Irish Sea, who will no doubt be seeking revenge.

Ireland are participating as an invited team at the tournament, though next year they will be a core outfit in the world tour as a result of their big win in Hong Kong. Therefore, the tournament will be viewed as vital preparation ahead of a hectic schedule jet-setting across the world next season.

But the English won't be the only danger for Ireland, with New Zealand and Scotland also making up the numbers in Group C.

The Irish men will also compete at the Paris tournament, after the London event, before heading to Colomiers in July for the Olympics qualifying tournament.
