Jordan Conroy named in Sevens Dream Team after sensational season

The 26-year-old Tullamore native scored 30 tries in 28 games during the truncated 2020 World Series.

IRELAND’S JORDAN CONROY landed Gilbert Top Try Scorer and earned a place on the coveted Men’s HSBC Dream Team for his standout performances in the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.

The 26-year-old Tullamore native scored 30 tries in 28 games, finishing eight tries ahead of USA speedster Carlin Isles in the scoring charts.

In addition, Conroy’s Ireland Men’s Sevens side picked up the Capgemini Momentum Tracker award, for their improvement during the season.

“I’m really proud of the achievement as it was our first year on the World Series as a core team,” said Conroy after receiving his Dream Team jersey from IRFU Director of Women’s and Sevens Rugby Anthony. Eddy

“For us a group to receive three awards, and in particular be recognised as a team, is testament to the work everyone has put in behind the scenes, from the players to all of the staff.

“To be named as the top try scorer and on the World Series Dream Team is an honour but again it is down to the hard work of everyone in the Ireland Sevens programme to enable us as players to go out and perform to the best of our ability.

“These awards only give us more hunger as players and as a group to better ourselves and improve on our performances from this season. A big goal for us as a team is to achieve Olympic qualification and that vision remains undiminished. We are working hard to put ourselves in the best position to have a good season in 2021.”
