Team News


Second Row Nichola Fryday will captain the side in Greg McWilliams first game in charge as there's plenty of new faces in the matchday squad. Three players are in line to make their debut as Christy Haney and Anna McGann are on the bench meanwhile Aoibhean Reilly starts at scrum-half.

Stacey Flood moves from out-half to inside centre as Nicole Cronin wears the 10 jersey. Winger Beibhinn Parsons has recently returned from injury and will make her return to the Ireland jersey off the bench.

This year also marks the start of a new era for Welsh women's rugby as its the first year since the WRU announced they'll offer players 12-months contracts and make them professional. It's a huge step for the WRU and for women's rugby as a whole and something the IRFU really should emulate soon.


Siwan Lillicrap is the captain of the side at number 8 meanwhile Sisilia Tuipolotu is in line to make her debut for Wales as she starts on the bench. Tuipolotu is only 18-years old and is the cousin of Wales international Taulupe Faletau so it's fair to say there's a bit of excitement around her right now.

It's a fresh start for those all around in women's rugby right now and with the new sponsorship with TikTok the future is looking bright for all those involved.
