Millwall Player Success at Dubai 7's

Dubai 7s
Despite heavy snow cancelling the rugby in London, Millwall first team player James Reilly was involved in Rugby of the Sevens variety over in Dubai this weekend for the annual Dubai Sevens. He won the Invitational Open category with the Wooden Spoon Blues, a charity team for disabled and disadvantaged children.

The Wooden Spoon Blues were undefeated in Dubai and finished their group with 9 points. The team then went on to win their Quarter final and beat Susies Christina Noble 26-5 in the Semi final. The Wooden Spoon Blues then retained their title won last year by overcoming Pyrenees 7's 24 - 12 in the final on pitch one, in front of more than 35000 fans from around the world, including two Millwall players, Ceri Thomas and Mike Taylor.

Big congratulations to James and his team. More can be found out about the Wooden Spoon charity by clicking here
