The Ulster Women’s squad, sponsored by Deloitte has been named for Saturday’s Interprovincial Series 3rd/4th place play-off versus Munster at Energia Park.
The Ulster Women will be aiming to finish the series on a high after another rollercoaster campaign. Following defeats to Munster and Leinster in the opening two rounds, the Ulster Women fell to an agonising 1 point defeat to Connacht in the third round.
In a new format for the series, Ulster were drawn against top ranked side Leinster, who outlined their ambitions to defend their series title, with a heavy win.
With Connacht defeating Munster in the other semi-final, the Ulster Women will now take on Munster in Saturday’s 3rd/4th place play-off.
