Griggs Finalises Squad for England Showdown

THEY are top of the Energia Women’s AIL so there is an argument that there should be more than the three UL Bohemian players selected on the 24-member Ireland Women’s squad for the game against England at the week-end.

The lucky trio are Ciara Griffin, Eimear Considine and Nicole Cronin and all of these should be included when the matchday squad is announced.
Ireland are coming into this round with two wins from two and will play their first away game of the tournament where they will face England in Doncaster on Sunday at 12.45pm.

Katie Fitzhenry is included in the squad after returning from the Sevens World Series in Sydney but Beibhinn Parsons will be unavailable for selection for the remainder of the Six Nations due to Leaving Cert preparation.

The team to play England will be named on Friday morning.
