The Ireland Women's squad wrapped up their training for the week with the Captain's Run session at Ashbourne RFC yesterday. Check out some photos of the girls in green preparing for their Women's RBS 6 Nations clash with England.
Last August Joe Schmidt watched on as the Ireland Women defeated his native New Zealand at the Women's Rugby World Cup. He spoke to the players but did not interrupt head coach Philip Doyle's preparations. It was not the first time Schmidt had watched the girls in green in action.
There are three huge RBS 6 Nations clashes for Ireland teams against England this weekend, with the Under-20s and Women's side first up on Friday night before the sold-out headline act at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
