Ireland Women To Play England In November

The Ireland Women’s squad, coached by Tom Tierney, will play an autumn international against England at the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday, November 14 (kick-off 3pm).

The Ireland Women, who are hosting an open training session at Kingspan Stadium this Saturday, will take on World champions England as part of the build-up to the 2016 Women’s RBS 6 Nations.

Ireland, the reigning Women’s RBS 6 Nations champions, defeated England 11-8 in their last encounter in Ashbourne back in February.

Speaking about the upcoming match, Anthony Eddy, IRFU Director of Women’s and Sevens Rugby, said: “The match against England in November will be used as preparation for the squad leading into the 2016 Six Nations.

“The national Women’s 15s programme are now preparing as a squad much earlier in the season than what they have done in the past, and the opportunity to play a Test match against England is fantastic for the development of the squad.

“England remain the Women’s World champions and are the benchmark for many national teams – this match will provide us with the opportunity to look at some potential players in a higher standard of competition.”

Ireland’s clash with England will kick off at 3pm at the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday, November 14, and will be streamed live on www.englandrugby.com.
