Ireland Squad Update: Beibhinn Parsons Out For Remainder Of Six Nations

Adam Griggs has named a squad of 24 players ahead of the third round of the 2020 Women’s Six Nations against England on Sunday.

Ireland have two wins out of two from the opening rounds of the tournament and travel to Doncaster to face England on Sunday afternoon.

Leinster’s Katie Fitzhenry is included in the squad after returning from the HSBC Sevens World Series in Sydney.

Ireland wing Beibhinn Parsons won’t be available for selection for the remainder of the Six Nations due to preparations for the Leaving Cert.

Parsons, who is just 18, has taken the tournament by storm, scoring two tries in the opening two rounds of Ireland’s campaign.  Speaking about Beibhinn, Ireland head coach Griggs said,

“It’s been a couple of big weeks for Beibhinn, but we spoke to her and came up with a plan at the start,” “Her studies are very important so we’ll be giving her the time off and she’ll concentrate on her Leaving Cert and come back to us in the summer.”

The team to play England will be named on Friday.
