Amanda leaves for the European 7s in Hannover
As you are aware our very own Amanda Sandsborg has been selected to represent Sweden in the European 7s. Together with the fastest and and strongest in Swedish Womens Rugby they will hopefully set out to make a mark no less than what the ladies did in the 15s. The preparation has not been as extensive, but 7s might be a sport on the move if they are one of the two approved sports for the Olympics in 2016. In any case we are proud to see that all of Amandas hard work and talent have paid off and we hope she will get a lot of game time and stay cool all the way as only Amanda can!
Sweden is playing England, Spain, France and Portugal and are seeded 4 out of 5 in that group. In pool B the Netherlands, Russia, Italy, Germany and Moldova are playing for the other spots in the Sunday finals. For schedule and other info look here european 7s.
