After staking a claim to the Australian Men’s Sevens jersey with appearances for the Aussie Thunderbolts in Noosa and Samoa for two years, Con Foley made the move to international Sevens with a debut at the inaugural Gold Coast Sevens in 2011.
He hit every stop of the World Series in the 2011-2012 season and also toured South Africa with the Australian Under 20s for the Junior World Championship – along with Sevens teammates Tom Cusack, Sean McMahon and Lewis Holland.
His contributions continued in the 2012-13 season, during which time he was named captain of the Australian Men’s Sevens for the Dubai, Port Elizabeth and Glasgow rounds of the World Series.
He was also one of Australia’s leading players in the Rugby World Cup Sevens 2013 campaign.
