The Munster Rugby women’s team recently held two screening days with 60 players from all over the province.

Munster Rugby women’s coach Wayne Falvey, assistant coach Aiden McNulty and team manager Dara O’Tuama were all in attendance alongside Munster Women’s Community Rugby Officer Amanda Greensmith.

The two sessions gave players the opportunity to stake a claim for a place in the Munster team for next season's interprovincial series.

Falvey and McNulty have been attending club games throughout the season but the screening day allowed them to look at players they may not have seen.

Greensmith, a former international player herself, is very positive about the future of women's rugby in the province after another stellar season and saw the screening days as a great success.

"It was great to have open trials just to have a look around and see players that we hadn’t seen before," she said.

"There are always new girls coming to the game, they may be coming from other sports and they’ll certainly have a core group of skills that would be useful to us. It’s important to see who’s out there and if there are players that we can work with to help make the transition to playing rugby a little bit smoother for them so it’s been really good.

"Winning the interpros this season was brilliant for us because we did it without our internationals and it was great to get a look at some players that maybe we hadn’t seen before," Greensmith continued.

"We gave them an opportunity to stand up and replace the internationals that were unavailable and a lot of the girls acquitted themselves very well to come through."
