The 2019/20 Women’s and U18 Interprovincial Series double-headers at Irish Independent Park are set for a rugby showcase with a number of initiatives run across both match days aimed at growing the women’s and girls game.

Munster Rugby in conjunction with the Munster Women’s Committee are hosting a series of workshops and events when the Munster Women and U18 Girls squads play their two home games against Ulster and Leinster at the Cork venue on Saturday 17 August and Saturday 31 August respectively.

A Munster Rugby women’s coaching workshop will be held before the U18 Girls face Ulster on Saturday 17 August with all active coaches involved in the female game invited to attend both a classroom and on-pitch session from 11am-12pm.

On Saturday 31 August, an information workshop for all women’s rugby managers and administrators will be run from 11am-12pm ahead of the U18 Girls match against Leinster and in preparation for the coming season.

Both workshops will be hosted by the Munster Women’s Committee as part of their commitment towards the development of the women’s and girls game.

A girls mini rugby blitz will be held from 10am-11.30am on Saturday the 31st at Irish Independent Park with 10 teams participating from around the province.

Mini rugby will also take centre stage during half-time of both senior women’s matches on Saturday 17 and Saturday 31 August with girls teams from clubs throughout the province.

Ball girls will cover sideline activity and a female deputy referee will be appointed in conjunction with the Munster Association of Referees for all four matches.

Flags will be provided and supporters are encouraged to wear red on the day – €5 adults and U18s go FREE.
