Support the Girls in Green at UCD this weekend


logo post greenYou see the schedule above, a link for tickets is there in the sidebar (though you can of course buy tickets on the day) and the weather is promising to be clement.  So if you can make it to Dublin and international rugby is your bag (and let's face it, you're reading this blog so there's no hiding it!) then you really should check out the World Women's 7s qualifiers at the UCD Bowl today & tomorrow.
 
While any sevens day out is a great event in and of itself, this particular one has extra meaning.  Up for grabs and definitely within Ireland's reach (due to talent more than merely home advantage) is a spot among the the dozen nations who will take part in the next World Series circuit.
 
The goal in Day 1 is to qualify for the quarterfinals.  As you can see above, Ireland play Mexico at 12:50, Hong Kong at 15:22 and finish with South Africa at 18:28.  Then should we make it out of the pool we have the knockout phase tomorrow...the overall aim is to finish in the top 3 and thus qualify for the World Series.
 
So I hope to see you there!  Best of luck to the girls in green! JLP
 
[But if you really really really can't make it and still want to watch, the IRFU are streaming it here.]
