Members of the Ireland Women’s 15s squad will this morning take time out of their pre-season schedule at the IRFU High Performance Centre to watch the Republic of Ireland’s hotly-anticipated opening match of the FIFA Women’s World Cup against co-hosts Australia.
It promises to be a landmark occasion for Irish sport as Vera Pauw’s side run out in Sydney for their first appearance at a major tournament. The Ireland Women’s 15s squad are firmly behind the girls in green.
Sending a message of support to captain Katie McCabe and her team-mates, Ireland’s Enya Breen said: “We want to wish you the best of luck for the World Cup, we’ll be watching on Thursday and we can’t wait to tune into the rest of the games as well. We’re so proud of you.”
