Three Shoremen named for 7’s World Cup


Shoremen Sam Myers, John Porch and Jesse Parahi have all been named in the team bound for San Francisco and the Rugby 7’s World Cup.

Veteran Jesse Parahi has won the race to be fit for the tournament after battling an ongoing knee concern that he picked up in Singapore.

Men’s coach Tim Walsh said his side had prepared as much as possible for the different format of the World Cup.

“We are used to playing six games over two days and not four games over three days, so in order to replicate the Rugby World Cup format we have adjusted our training and strategies to assist with our mental preparation. More so than ever our ‘Process driven and Performance based’ thinking, is relevant,” he said.

The Aussie men open their campaign against the winner of a preliminary match against France and Jamaica while the women take on Papua New Guinea.
