There are six uncapped players in the Ireland squad for the summer tour to North America that was named this morning. An Emerging Ireland squad has also been selected for the Tblisi Cup in Georgia.
Division 1 is full competitive rugby and this seasons League Final should be a cracker with Limerick rivals Shannon, last year's winners taking on newcomers UL Bohemians in their first season of competitive action. There will be no love lost between the sides with former Shannon players Sara Jane Belton and Patrique Kelly both current Internationals lining out for UL Bohs. No less than 11 Internationals from both sides will be on display. For Shannon, Fiona Steed (Irelands most capped player), Rosie Foley (brother of Anthony), Rachel Tucker (daughter of Lion Colm) and Jean Lonergan (PE Teacher at Waterford's Presentation School) all line out while for UL Bohs as well as Belton and Kelly, Internationals, Louise Beamish, Elaine Collins, Lynn Cantwell, Rochelle Howell and Mary O'Loughlin all take the field. The action kicks off at 12 noon with the Development League Final, followed by the Division 2 Final at 1pm and finally the Division 1 final is scheduled for 3pm.
