sarah-dentThree players from 2 Connacht clubs have been called up to trial for next year’s Ireland U18’s 7’s squad. Grace Moran (Westport RFC), Aoibheann Reilly and Sarah Dent (Ballinasloe RFC) have all been called up for trials in Belfast this weekend. Those selected will be taking part in 3 tournaments in the New Year, starting with a UK tournament in May, followed by the UK schools and Fira Tournament in September.

Wendy Hickey, WDO, is delighted for the Connacht based players. “I am thrilled for these girls to get the call to trial for the Ireland U18’s 7’s team. 7’s rugby is still very new here in Ireland, with many new tournaments taking place to help these players gain more experience in playing 7’s on a full pitch. The upcoming U18’s 7’s Interprovincial will also take place at the end of April, which will also help in preparing the girls for upcoming tournament. I wish the best of luck to Aoibheann, Sarah and Grace over the weekend, it should be another great experience in what I would forsee as a very propserous rugby career.”
