Tom Daly will continue in his role as captain as Irish Rugby Sevens director Anthony Eddy names his side for the Rugby Europe Sevens Trophy this weekend.

Ireland won the first leg of the tournament beating Sweden and now look to move a closer to a place in the Rugby Europe Grand Prix next season at he tournament in Prague.

Eddy makes two changes to his side, former Sale Sharks' winger John O'Donnell comes into the side, along with former Munster winger Luke O'Dea.

"We were very pleased with how the first leg of the Rugby Europe Trophy went in Malmo and it is important that we back up that performance this weekend," Eddy said.

"We are looking to get a good result in the Trophy competition so that we can qualify for next year's Rugby Europe's Sevens Grand Prix as we continue to build towards qualification for the World Series in the coming years."

Ireland have been drawn into Pool A with Israel, Cyprus and Monaco.
