Rugby World Cup 2021 Europe Qualifier
Ireland Head Coach Adam Griggs has announced his 28-player squad for the upcoming Rugby World Cup 2021 Europe Qualifier in Italy.
Ciara Griffin is set to captain the side as they bid to book their ticket to next year’s tournament in New Zealand.
Griggs has included three uncapped players in his selection for the qualifying tournament in Parma, as Ireland will face off with hosts Italy, Spain and Scotland for a place at Rugby World Cup 2021.
Ireland Women’s Sevens captain Lucy Mulhall and Sam Monaghan, who has come through the IRFU’s IQ Rugby programme, are included for the first time having trained with the extended squad at the IRFU High-Performance Centre in recent weeks.
The third uncapped player is Leinster’s Mary Healy, who has impressed during the Vodafone Women’s Interprovincial Championship in recent weeks.
