For two years in succession, Lansdowne have won the Dublin 7s club competition. It was fitting that Lansdowne would contest the final against their north Dublin rivals, Clontarf, in what proved to be a pulsating game.

7s rugby is entertaining to watch but no doubt, come final time, it’s a different story for the players. After 5 qualifying and semin final games, the two finalists slogged it out for top honours.

Lansdowne proved too strong for Clontarf and emerged as Dublin 7s Club Champions 2017.
