Ireland Women's Sevens coach Jon Skurr has announced a 12 woman squad for the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow (June 29th/30th).
"So it's an opportunity for us to see exactly how far we have travelled.
"You look at the tournament and the teams you are coming up against and it's obvious it is a ferocious competition - there's not one bad team in it. All of the games are going to be tough.
"It's also seen as being just one step below international rugby, so Friday night is a great opportunity for our players to go out and show just how capable they are and how far they have come.
"And it's good for us as a management team to see them play at that level; it helps us gauge how far they have progressed and where they still have to go.
"We're very keen to show that we can play good rugby, though in doing that we also have to be aware of the quality of the opposition and the need to play accordingly."
