RUGBY pundit Brent Pope joined Tim Magee, Colm McMahon and Eoghan Prendergast at the launch of the Limerick World Club Sevens Festival which will take place in Thomond Park next month.

The event, on August 9 and 10, will see Limerick host some of the biggest names in club and provincial rugby from around the world, including Australia, France, Russia, New Zealand and Canada.

Munster Rugby will line out against Fiji in the inaugural tournament following the draw at King John's Castle yesterday. The event takes place the weekend before the World Club Sevens event is held in Twickenham, England.
