The Ireland women’s team will make their debut at the RDS next month when they meet USA and Japan in the autumn internationals.

The women’s team have never played at the venue before and the two matches will close out Adam Griggs’ time in charge before Greg McWilliams takes over.

Ireland will meet the USA first on Friday November 12th at 7.15pm, the night before the men’s team take on the All Blacks, before facing Japan on Saturday November 20th at 3pm.

The USA match will be shown live on RTÉ Player with the Japan clash live on RTÉ2.

“We look forward to welcoming supporters back to women’s international rugby for the first time since March 2020,” said IRFU chief executive Philip Browne.

“Travel support is on offer, once again, to our clubs and schools and we hope to see as many supporters as possible at the RDS for these two exciting Test matches.”
