DUBLIN LADIES FOOTBALLER Hannah Tyrrell was on the scoresheet for the Irish Women’s Sevens team in Moscow this afternoon.

Tyrrell ran in two second half tries as Jon Skurr’s side won their 7th/8th place playoff match at the European Sevens Grand Prix, which was ultimately clinched by England.

For the second day in succession, Ireland were no match for England. They lost their cup quarter final match 29-0 and took a step down to compete for the plate. Ireland were then edged out by Spain, 12-7, and were left to contest the playoff.

Amee-Leigh Murphy Crowe scored two tries in the first-half and scrum-half Nicole Cronin added a third before the break. Tyrrell, who was in goalscoring form for Clondalkin Round Towers and Dublin last season, took over in the second half. Cronin made a smart break and teed Tyrrell up for her first. He second was a solo effort as she jigged in from the left wing and stepped the covering defender to dot down and seal a 31-0 win.

According to the official IRFU website, former Ireland No.8 Joy Neville was the referee for the 3rd/4th place playoff between Portugal and The Netherlands.
