Joy Neville to referee Women’s Rugby World Cup Final

The Limerick woman will officiate the final on Saturday evening.

Neville who had a hugely successful playing career with Ireland will oversee the tournament showpiece between New Zealand and England on Saturday at the Kingspan Ravenhill in Belfast.

Neville, who has had a rapid rise in the refereeing ranks since 2013, made history in 2016 when she became the first female official in European rugby when she was a touch judge in the game between Bath and Bristol.

The 70 times Irish capped player will be joined by Scotland’s Hollie Davidson and Graham Cooper of Australia. The television match official will be Ireland’s Simon McDowell.
