Baloucoune Features in Moscow 7s

Enniskillen's Robert Baloucoune featured last weekend as Ireland were crowned back-to-back Moscow 7s champions after sweeping all before them in the first leg of the 2018 Rugby Europe Sevens Grand Prix Series. It is also a successful first step towards reaching next year's World Sevens Series qualifier in Hong Kong.

The wet and difficult underfoot conditions at Oktyabr Stadium tested the teams throughout the tournament, but Ireland were a class apart, defeating Poland (29-0), Portugal (35-0) and Germany (33-0) in yesterday's pool stages, before overcoming Spain (26-0), France (31-0) and Germany in today's knockout clashes.
