    Good on them. Shame if they want to advance now the women's game in Ireland appears to be in a shambolic state...

    maybe we don't have the strength in depth right now is questionable but long term the prospects look far from a shambles, women's rugby is very well organised across the country and you only have to look at all the mini rugby touraments and userage womens to see that it is very popular and growing amongst the opposite sex.

    yeah they've done well. Had been trying to do some updates in the general Irish 7s thread but had forgotten about this tournament. They've done well considering small numbers playing and although ladies world cup was disappointing on the pitch it was success off and hopefully can help get more girls playing the sport

    it isn't really. If you look at all levels from girls to women's club game etc it isn't at all.

    it's fairly well organised. Not so sure about very well organised. There isn't that many girls mini rugby events and underage girls competitions are still extremely small in terms of competitors.
