Baloucoune Makes Hong Kong 7s Squad

Our own Robert Baloucoune has been named in the Ireland Men's 7s squad to travel to Hong Kong.

They will compete at the World Rugby Sevens Series Qualifier at the Hong Kong Sevens this weekend.

The winner of the tournament will gain a place on next season’s World Rugby Sevens Series.

It's a huge achievement for Robert who is the only Ulster representative named in the squad and the only member of a junior club side.
