The teams are up for this afternoons Women’s Inter Provincial match between Munster and Ulster at Thomond Park. KO 2:30pm.
Ulster have made three changes to the side that lost to Leinster with Shannon Heapes coming in at tighthead, Noreen Neathercott starting in the back row and Peta McAlister joining the back line at wing.
Kelly Gormley, Sabrina Higgins, Shirelle Wilson and Erin Caughey have been added to the replacements bench.
It’ll be an other interesting step in the development of this team under the guidance of coaches Philip Doyle and Jarrett Truscott and I’ll be interested to see how youngsters Heapes, McCullagh and Dane progress in this one after promising games last week.
However, I’m particularly looking forward to seeing young Erin Caughey at this level following the rave reviews of her performances at underage.
