Alba Ovale – 2016

Shade Munro ha confermato in blocco il gruppo delle 23 ragazze della Scotland Women, che hanno messo in difficoltà la Francia settimana scorsa, per la trasferta di Dublino contro l’Irlanda – in programma domenica 20 marzo, con kick-off fissato all’1pm, match live su IrishRugby.ie – https://youtu.be/jY–wC4JHP0.

La player of the match dell’ultima gara, la giovanissima centro di Melrose, Lisa Thomson e Rhona Lloyd, che hanno debuttato in questo 6 Nations, sono quindi ancora pronte a scendere in campo anche contro le campionesse in carica, che non hanno però alcuna possibilità di difendere il titolo conquistato a Cumbernauld lo scorso anno dopo le sconfitte rimediate contro Francia e Inghilterra.
