Shujaa to rekindle duel with Argentina, Ireland in Hong Kong


National rugby 7s team will kick off their 2022/2023 HSBC Sevens World Series campaign in Hong Kong against Argentina, Ireland and Canada in Pool D. 

The Hong Kong Sevens tournament is set for November 4-6 and will be the curtain raiser for the annual competition, which includes other legs including Dubai, Cape Town and London.

Damian McGrath’s men will be hoping for a better placing than their last tournament where they finished 12th at last month’s Sevens World Cup in South Africa, losing 26-19 to the United States in their knockout tie. 

Shujaa have an opportunity to revenge on the South Americans, to whom they lost 29-7 in a fifth-place match at the season-ending Los Angeles Sevens in August.

They will also have to bounce back against the Irish who dominated 17-14 during last month’s encounter at the London Sevens.
