Ireland 7s In European Olympic Qualifiers This Weekend

Kerry’s Louise Galvin and her Irish 7s team-mates this weekend compete in Round 2 of the European Olympic Qualifiers. They open against Scotland tomorrow morning and also face Germany and England in their Pool. Connacht have announced the signing of Api Pewhairangi. The 23-year old played rugby union as a youth in Manawatu but switched to rugby league at the age of 17, when he moved to Wellington. He has since played for Parramatta Eels and, most recently, New Zealand Warriors. Pewhairangi, whose grandmother was from Lucan, County Dublin, represented Ireland in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.
