U18 Women’s Provincial Squads Announced For 2019 Series

The competing squads for the 2019 U18 Women’s Interprovincial Series has been announced. The competition format will mirror the senior women with the addition of semi-final and final rounds after a round-robin series between Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Ulster.

Most of the games will also be staged in a double-header format allowing the U18 Women better alignment with their senior counterparts and a chance for rugby fans to double up on their interprovincial entertainment.

First up, Connacht return to the scene of their 2018 Championship win with a visit to Barnhall to face Leinster on Saturday August 17th at 2pm.

There’s an action packed day in store at Irish Independent Park in Cork for Round One, including the meeting of Munster and Ulster at 1pm.
