Leinster supporters will get a chance to honour several players from Ireland's Six Nations and Grand Slam winning side who will display the Women's Six Nations trophy at half-time of Saturday's Amlin Challenge Cup Semi-Final against Biarritz...
Captain Fiona Coghlan will be joined by her Leinster and Ireland team mates, Ailis Egan, Marie Louise Reilly, Sharon Lynch and Nora Stapleton and Ireland Senior Women's coach Philip Doyle at the RDS on Saturday - so please be sure to give the Leinster stars a big cheer when they take to the field!
After a win over Wasps in the RDS Arena last weekend, Leinster will travel to face Castres Olympique on Sunday in Stade Pierre-Antoine in Round 2 of the Champions Cup (KO 1pm Irish time, Live SKY Sports).
The Ireland Coaching Team has named a squad of 37 players for the forthcoming Guinness Series which features Tests against South Africa, Georgia and Australia. The squad includes Richardt Strauss who is just back from a hamstring injury suffered last May and also the uncapped Dominic Ryan, who captained the Emerging Ireland side during the summer.
Despite Leinster at one stage trailing Wasps by 12 points in the RDS Arena last night, Darragh Fanning says he never felt worried and that if the team stuck to their game plan then they would get the result.
