IRB Series Schedule 2009/10 - Dubai & George

IRB SEVENS LOGOThe IRB Rugby Sevens Series will be kicking off in just over a weeks time in Dubai on the 4th/5th of December and England Sevens coach Ben Ryan  announced his squad for both Dubai and the second leg George in South Africa

Ryan has retained seven players who reached finals in Dubai, Wellington, San Diego and London last season.  Ben Gollings (Unattached), Kevin Barrett (Saracens) and the Army's Isoa Damudamu are amongst the experienced seven and will be joined by England Under 20s speedster Christian Wade who will be hoping to earn his first sevens cap this year.


Said Ryan, "Everyone in the squad has worked very hard to get here. More hard work is around the corner for all of the players, but we go to Dubai and George with a good mix of players who can't wait to wear the white shirt with pride."

Just glad none of the Newcastle players have been selected. IT Would've taken away the momentum thats being built.

Your best player hasn't been to England for a decade except to play in a competition.

Rarua: I am guessing you are talking of Gollings?

However, when he was here playing(not playing) in the Zurich/GPremiership he only had eyes for the Sevens and if I remember correctly had cluases written into his contract about being allowed to go with the 7s at all times.

So to my mind, I don't thin any club would want to take on a player with demands like that.

Fair enough, and yes it was Gollings.

Rarua, you are wrong. Gollings played for Newcastle and Worcester in 2004 and Doncaster in 2007.
