Two Tipperary players have been named in the Ireland Sevens women's rugby squad.

Dorothy Wall from Fethard and Amee-Leigh Murphy Crowe from Tipperary Town are included in the 26-player selection announced by IRFU Director of Sevens and Women's Rugby Anthony Eddy.

The squad will convene for pre-season training next Monday, August 16, as they build towards the HSBC Women's World Sevens Series which takes place in Dubai and Cape Town in December.

Both Dorothy (Blackrock College/Munster) and Amee-Leigh (Railway Union/Munster) were in the Irish squad that competed in the Six Nations championship earlier this year.

"It is an extremely exciting time for the Sevens programme and we're delighted to name a squad with such experience and exciting young talent ahead of the new season," said Eddy.
