Ulster Women U18 travel to Barnhall RFC, on the outskirts of Dublin, for the U18 Interprovincial Finals Day where they face Munster U18. In previous years Ulster have travelled with some say in the final destination of the trophy but this time round it’s a wooden spoon play off against their rivals.
It’s been a difficult season for the Ulster youngsters who should have delivered a better return than their two defeats to date. As with the seniors it’s been poor use of the ball when in possession that has been their downfall and they have struggled at the breakdown but they do go into this final game as marginal favourites.
Toni Macartney, Zara Flack and Zoe Rafferty are the only changes to the starting XV with Emma Ryan and Ruth Gilsenan moving to the replacements with Lauren Kilfidder joining the squad.
Ulster U18 Women: Toni Macartney, Sophie Kinghan, Amanda McQuade, Kelly McCormill, Zara Flack, Lisa Mullen, Zoe Rafferty, Ella Garland, Aoife Cahill, Ava Fannin, Sorcha Higgins, Naomi McCord, Lucy Turkington, Katie Hetherington, Ciara Byers. Replacements: Cara O’Neil, Delyth Cook, Hannah Cooney, Fern Wilson, India Daley, Lauren Kilfidder, Emma Ryan, Ruth Gilsenan
