The final takes place Saturday 2 Spetember.
Head Coach Lyndon Jones says he can’t wait for the Championship to get going:
“We can’t wait to get started and play some games. The squad have been training really hard heading into the Interprovincial campaign so now it’s about putting all our hard work into practice over the next four weeks.
It’s a young squad with loads of potential and as a coaching team we’re excited about what these next four weeks have to offer
The squad has a lot of new faces with some incredible players coming through from our age grade programmes – which is a testament to all the hard work being done by both Connacht and the clubs in continuing to grow the Women’s game.
We have two home game this year so I’d really encourage every rugby supporter in the province to come out and support the group starting Saturday August 12th at The Sportsground. It would be well deserved for these players after all their efforts and commitment the past few weeks.”
