Munster Rugby and IRFU Referee Department have just completed their very successful joint venture to find the next generation of referees in schools within the Limerick area.
Ireland Women go in to this crunch game as the only undefeated side in the tournament but face the challenge of a French side who have been relentless in their last two games making up for their surprise opening defeat to Italy.
The coverage of the Women's campaign continues with the game streamed live on www.IrishRugby.ie and on www.rte.ie with a commentary team that includes former Women’s International and Munster player/coach Fiona Steed.
In addition, RTÉ's 2FM will have live commentary of the game at Ashbourne RFC with Michael Corcoran and former Ireland international and Munster player Rosie Foley joining him on air.
Speaking ahead of the game Doyle said, "It is great to have our goals already ready reached for this season with Rugby World Cup qualifications and the Triple Crown secured. That being said, this squad has further goals and a win over France will certainly get us a step closer to those."
"Having seen France’s very strong performance a fortnight ago we know that this fixture will be a very tight one but will certainly be very entertaining for the crowd."
"We are looking forward to playing in front of the home crowd in Ashbourne, they always give us great support and can really make a difference for the team on the pitch."
