Louise Galvin called into Irish 7’s squad for Kazan tournament

Munster and Bohs’ Louise Galvin returns to the Ireland Women’s 7’s squad for Kazan trip.

The tournament in the Russian city is their final tournament of the season, and the second stage of the Rugby Europe Sevens Grand Prix.

Anthony Eddy’s squad are bidding to qualify for next season’s Sevens World Cup in San Francisco, and Galvin joins Munster team-mates Claire Keohane and Amee-Leigh Murphy-Crowe, while Cork woman Audrey O’Flynn continues from the first series in Malemort where the team finished in 3rd place.

Ten of the 13 that achieved that finish a few weeks back are heading to Russia where Ireland are in Pool C with England, Sweden and Poland.

Ahead of the side departing for the Russia coach Anthony Eddy said

The squad had a good two weeks in France in June, finishing third in Malemort at the Grand Prix and then we had a top eight finish at the Clermont 7s, where we had three new caps.

“It’s been a progressive season for the Women’s Sevens Programme, so we will be looking to end it on a positive note in Kazan, where we will be looking to gain qualification for next season’s Sevens Rugby World Cup in San Francisco.”
