The couple have a well documented appreciation for horse racing, having made their first public appearance as a couple at Fairyhouse Races in April and are said to be "smitten" with one another.

The 22-year-old earned her stripes as one of the most glamorous WAGS on the rugby scene in a chic white pantsuit and nude clutch, with her other half opting for a laid-back look with a pink striped oxford shirt, blazer and jeans.
