Connacht welcome four Ireland internationals to the Sportsground for tomorrow's clash with Leinster as Mairead Coyne, Mary Healy, Ciara O'Connor and Nicole Fowley will be presented to the crowd along with the Women's World Cup trophy.

With seven Connacht players in the Ireland Women's squad that were beaten by England in the Six Nations decider last month, it is clear that the hard work being done at grassroots level in the province is paying off.

Ireland host the Women's World Cup in August and it is a great opportunity to grow the game even further. The Women's World Cup trophy tour is in full swing at the moment as excitement builds ahead of the tournament.The trophy tour continued in Connacht over the past two weeks with some fantastic festivals of rugby across the province.
