Women’s Team Unchanged For Italian Clash

Women’s Team Unchanged For Italian Clash

Ireland Women’s coach Steve Hennessy has named the same team that beat France last week for their second RBS Women’s 6 Nations game against Italy in Colleferro this coming Saturday.

The Irish Women’s team scored a famous 7-5 victory over their French counterparts at Ashbourne last Friday and they now travel to Italy looking to build on that performance.

The team will again be captained by number 8 Joy Neville.
