Ireland advance to Grand Prix quarters after good morning in Moscow

Anthony Eddy’s side finished second in their pool.

THE IRELAND MEN’S sevens team have advanced through to the quarter-finals of the Rugby Europe Grand Prix after winning two of their three group games this morning.

Anthony Eddy’s side recorded victories over Wales and Georgia to finish second in their pool and despite a defeat to Germany, it was enough to see them through to the knock-out stages of the competition.

Ireland got their campaign in Moscow off to a strong start with a 26-5 win over Wales but suffered a setback when they lost by seven points to Germany before seeing off Georgia 19-13.

This weekend is the first time that Ireland have competed at this level with the tournament offering the chance to qualify for the Sevens Rugby World Cup.

There are four legs in Moscow, Lodz, Clermont and Exeter scheduled to take place between now and 16 July.

The Moscow Grand Prix quarter-finals take place on Sunday.
