The Heineken Kinsale 7s gets underway this weekend with the festival set to be as exciting and competitive as ever and with a full jam-packed social programme in place, thousands are expected to descend on Cork.
After battling through both fierce competition and torrid conditions at the 25th annual Heineken Kinsale 7’s Tournament it was Wooden Spoon representative teams that won both the men’s elite competition and the women’s competition.
Talking Rugby Union’s sponsored sevens team the Red Panda 7’s battled through difficult, misty conditions in Cork, Ireland at the 25th annual Heineken Kinsale 7’s tournament, finishing the weekend as Day 1 winners, unfortunately losing out in the semi-finals of the main competition.
