Terenure scrum-half Tim Schmidt has been called up to the Irish Sevens squad for this weekend's Silicon Valley sevens tournament in San Jose, California.

Schmidt is one of six new call ups to the side with Will Connors, Billy Dardis, Harry McNulty, Bryan Mollen and Greg O'Shea also joining him in the squad for the first time.

Meanwhile Jordan Conroy, Shane Daly, Ian Fitzpatrick, Terry Kennedy, John O'Donnell and Mark Roche will all rejoin the squad after playing in the Elche sevens in Alicante, Spain, last weekend, where Ireland finished in second place behind Wales.

Speaking ahead of the weekend's action, IRFU Director of Rugby Sevens, Anthony Eddy said:

"This weekend's tournament is set to be another big test for the players selected.

"We're in a challenging pool, with three core World Series sides, including last year's runners-up England, so it's another chance to benchmark ourselves against top class opposition.

"Those players who were involved in last weekend's tournament in Elche will also need to make sure they've rested and recovered appropriately ahead of this weekend – this is one of the most important aspects for sides involved on the World Series, so it's a good opportunity to replicate these conditions.”

Ireland will be placed in Pool A alongside Canada, England and Samoa while Australia, New Zealand, USA and Olympic Gold Medallists Fiji will also be competing at the event.
