The Connacht Womens management team have named their starting XV for tomorrow’s IRFU Women’s Interprovincial Championship Final, with the squad going in search of a historic first interpro title.
 
There’s one change to the side that impressively saw off Munster in the semi-finals last week, with Aifric O’Brien coming into the second row where she’ll be joined by Tara Buggie.
 
Nichola Fryday captains the side from 8 where she’ll be flanked by Ciara Farrell and Edel McMahon, while Laura Feely, Moya Griffin and Annmarie O’Hora complete the pack in the front row.
 
Vice-captain Mary Healy and Meabh Deely continue their half-back partnership, as do Shannon Touhey and Catherine Martin in midfield. Aoibheann Reilly is named at full-back with last week’s try-scorers Alison Miller and Beibhinn Parsons on the wing.
 
Kick-off at Energia Park, Donnybrook is at 7pm and the game will be streamed LIVE on the Irish Rugby Facebook and YouTube pages.
