The Sherrards Assassins recently played in the International Men’s Open at the Emirates Airlines Dubai Rugby 7’s and having won five out of their six games, they won the Plate Competition and returned home with some further silverware. This added to the success that the team have had over the last six/seven years both in England and abroad. They are now a well-known name on the 7’s circuit.
This year, we were joined by two of the Australian National 7’s squad. The Sherrards Assassins were approached by the Australian national team as two of their players were coming back from injury. As a result of one of the players (Tom Conner) having an excellent tournament, he was selected to play for Australia in the tournament that took place on the following weekend in South Africa. The team were on the coach on the way back to the Hotel when he got the call! In addition, the Sherrards Assassins had three members of the Swedish national team who have played for the Assassins in various tournaments. The Assassins are hoping to grow and build our connections with these two National sides.
The next stop is Kinsale in Ireland. Keep following the “boys”!
Come on you Assassins!
