The IRFU and USA Rugby have announced that the Ireland Women’s 15s will play the USA Women’s team at Energia Park in Donnybrook on Saturday, 18th November.
The game will be the fourth time the sides will have met in the past two decades, with the USA having won in 1994 and 2006 and Ireland winning the most recent game at the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup in France.
Anthony Eddy, Director of Women’s Rugby, expressed his delight that Ireland will host the Eagles Women, stating:
”We are delighted to welcome the USA to Dublin this November. This is the third time the Women’s side have played representative matches during the autumn window, and it will provide the squad with some valuable match experience leading into next year’s Women’s Six Nations.”
The Women’s 15s November schedule will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
