Injuries and unavailablities have seen a marked change to the makeup of the team with Internationals SaraJane Belton, Jean Lonergan, Edel Coen, Maeve Quirke and regulars Eimear O'Sullivan Denise Tracy, Grace Sheehy and Noddy Duggan either injured or overseas.
Despite these losses coaches Mark Andrews and Rohan West have been able to put together a very experienced side including 9 Internationals with the only player in the starting 15 making her Munster debut being Vivian Boland, a former New Zealand Black Fern. The game should prove to be an uncompromising affair and will undoubtedly showcase the huge strides forward made by Irelands female players in recent years. 1. Olivia Brown Shannon 2.
