The Leinster Women kept Ulster scoreless when they defeated them 46-0 in last season’s Interprovincial Series match at Donnybrook Stadium.

Leinster lost out to Connacht in their opening fixture last year when the western province came out on top at Tuam RFC by 8-5.

Leinster will face the Connacht at home in Round 2 this year on Saturday, 9th December at Donnybrook (KO 5pm).

A 21-12 win over Munster in the final round of games secured the Interprovincial title for Leinster last year, and the two sides will meet again in Round 3, this time at Thomond Park on 16th December (KO 2.30pm).
