Ireland suffer whitewash in women's sevens
Rugby sevens: Ireland Women's sevens side were condemned to a 12th-place finish in the second round of the HSBC World Rugby Women's Sevens Series in Sao Paulo.
A difficult first day saw Ireland lose out to Australia, Canada and Fiji and their luck didn't change yesterday as they fell to two further defeats.
A 15-0 loss to Russia in the Bowl semi-final was followed by a 19-0 defeat to Spain. Their attentions now turn to the Atlanta Sevens in April, with Olympic qualifying taking place in Dublin in June.
