What an achievement.
Ireland announced themselves tot the world of sevens over the weekend, stunning everyone to finish in third place overall at the London 7s despite only being the invitational side.
Anthony Eddy’s side didn’t get off to the best of starts on day one, losing to Australia in their first game. But they bounced back to soundly beat Spain and ended up qualifying for the quarter-final stages of the cup.
It was here where Ireland set down a serious marker, defeating a USA team that featured Carlin Isles to progress to a mouth-watering encounter with current Olympic champions Fiji.
While the Fijians proved to be a step too far for the Irish, the weekend wasn’t over yet, with England still to come in the bronze final. Ireland then caused a further shock, with a last minute try from Jordan Conroy, converted by Mark Roche securing a famous bronze medal for the Irish. Incredible.
