Ireland men qualify for quarter-finals of Dubai 7s despite narrow defeat to France
Ireland play Argentina in the quarter-finals tomorrow morning.

IRELAND WILL PLAY Argentina in the quarter-finals of the men’s Dubai 7s tomorrow.

They had a disappointing day today, beating Uganda, drawing with Spain, before suffering a 14-7 defeat to France. Still, they make the quarters, the Pumas await this morning. Victory there sends Ireland into a semi-final date against either Australia or the USA.

They got off to a decent start this morning when tries by Jack Kelly, Andrew Smith and Jordan Conroy had Ireland on the cusp on an opening win, but Spain’s Aratz Goicoechea struck late for a share of the spoils (21-all).

James Topping’s men then emerged as 33-15 victors over Uganda: Zac Ward, Conroy, Harry McNulty, Bryan Mollen and Aaron O’Sullivan all scoring.
