Leinster women's team to play Harlequins at Twickenham


The Leinster women's rugby team is set to play a festive fixture against Harlequins at Twickenham next month.

The reigning inter-pro champions will face women's Premiership leaders Harlequins in a friendly at the home of rugby on December 28th.

Irish internationals Anna Caplice and Leah Lyons are both members of the Harlequins squad.

It'll be played after the Gallagher Premiership fixture between Quins and the Leicester Tigers.

“This is hugely historic. I’m excited for the province, for rugby in Ireland and also for Harlequins, as a former player there myself,” said Leinster captain Sene Naoupu.

“We’re excited and we’ll be training hard to make sure it’s a top game.”

“This is a hugely unique and historic event for girls and women’s rugby in Leinster and the whole squad of players and staff can’t wait for it,” added Leinster's head coach Ben Armstrong

“This has already been a season of firsts with a double-header in Energia Park with the men’s team a few months ago, the addition of two extra Development Officers focused on the women’s game in the 12 counties and now this Harlequins game to look forward to in December and at the home of English rugby as well.”
