The countdown is on to the historic first-ever game between the Leinster Rugby and Harlequins Women’s teams to be played at Twickenham Stadium on 28 December.

The game will be part of the ‘Big Game 12’ event which also sees Harlequins take on Leicester Tigers in the Gallagher Premiership.

Big Game 12 will feature entertainment across the whole day from spectacular firework displays to performances from stars from the music industry alongside activities for all ages as well as meet and greets with stars from the rugby world.

Speaking about the historic fixture between the sides, Leinster Rugby Women’s head coach, Ben Armstrong, said: “This has already been a season of firsts with a doubleheader in Energia Park with the men’s team a few months ago, the addition of two extra Development Officers focused on the women’s game in the 12 counties and now this Harlequins game to look forward to in December and at the home of English rugby as well.”

This will be the first time Harlequins Women will have played a domestic game at Twickenham and the very first women’s club game of its kind at the home of English rugby.
