Selected at full back against Italy

We are proud of you, we are proud of you!

Following Niamh's performance against England, Niamh has been selected to start at full back against Italy on Tuesday (9th July).

Ireland battled hard against England in the first game of the inaugural Under 20s Six Nations last Friday, and were the eventual losers by 33 - 20. Niamh (Pictured on the right of the team photo) came on in the 57th minute to replace Hannah Clarke on the wing and impressed the coaches, not least by her try saving tackle in the 78th minute.

The Ireland full back Robyn O'Connor moves to the wing to accommodate Niamh at full back, with Hannah Clarke now on the bench.

The match on Tuesday kicks off at 9,00 (Irish time) and can be watched on Youtube.

Good luck Niamh - we are right behind you!
