Musgrave Park To Host Women’s Interpros Finals Day
27th August 2023 By The Editor
The IRFU is delighted to confirm that Musgrave Park will host the Vodafone Women’s Interprovincial Championship Finals Day on Saturday, 2nd September.
The 2023 Championship reaches Round 3 this weekend as Connacht face Ulster in Galway (Kick-off 2.30pm, live on TG4) and Leinster go head-to-head with Munster at Energia Park (Kick-off 4.45pm, live on TG4).
Defending champions Munster have already secured their place in the Championship Final courtesy of impressive victories over Ulster and Connacht, and Niamh Briggs‘ side will be looking to carry that momentum into tomorrow’s heavyweight clash with Leinster in Dublin.
Leinster are currently second in the standings but Connacht, having recorded a memorable win over Tania Rosser‘s side on the opening weekend, are just two points behind in third and will be battling to book their place in next weekend’s decider in Cork.
The third-fourth place play-off will take place at Musgrave Park at 2pm, before the 2023 Championship Final kicks off at 4pm, with both matches live free-to-air on TG4.
Amanda Greensmith, IRFU Women’s Development Manager, commented: “We are delighted to bring the Vodafone Interprovincial Championship Finals to Musgrave Park and the home of the defending champions Munster.
“We have seen the welcome and support afforded to our Women’s and U20s teams here and look forward to both games on Saturday, 2nd September. The Championship has been really exciting to date and I’m sure the Finals will be the same.”
