Ireland’s rugby 7’s side have qualified for the Tokyo Olympic Games after a 28-19 victory at the final Qualifying tournament in Monaco over France.
Two blistering tries by Buccaneers Jordan Conroy within a minute sent Ireland on the way to victory at the World Rugby Sevens Repechage, as they secured the 12th and final place in the Men’s Sevens competition in Tokyo.
Ireland had beaten Hong Kong 28 points to five in the semi-final earlier today. Victory over Samoa this morning had seen Ireland win their group with four victories.
