    Women's RWC 2017 Dublin-Belfast

    If there's a thread on this already I've missed it.

    Got an email from Ulster Rugby this evening including the following info:

    The Semi-finals day will consist of a ranking game and two semi finals, while the Finals day will also feature three games, including the final, plus the third-place and fifth-place play-offs. Irrespective of results during the tournament, Ireland are guaranteed to be playing at Kingspan Stadium on both days.

    TICKETING

    Tickets for Semi-finals day are priced from £7 for children and £12 for adults, with terrace and seated both available.
    Tickets for Finals day are priced from £10 for children and £15 for adults, with only terrace available.
    A 2 Day ticket is available, covering both Semi-finals and Finals day, priced at £21 for terrace or £28 for seated. Limited availability.


    I clicked on the link to buy a couple of combo tickets for the semis & finals days, but ticketmaster is only showing terrace availability. Does anybody know were these tickets on sale before today? Hoping that the seated tickets aren't actually sold out and it's just a question of ticketmaster doing the same pricking about that they did for the Sarries semi final.
    Tis but a scratch.

    Tickets have been on sale since January so its great that theyre nearly sold out. Now hopefully we get close to full capacity for the games.

    Match officials were announced a few months ago and we've good representation there as well with 2 referees and 1 assistant referees involved with Sean Gallagher, ref development officer in Connacht and Joey Neville Refereeing and Helen O Reilly the assistant referee4

    We've played Japan twice in behind closed door games in UCD , winning both games

        I saw that. I might go turbonerd and get one (or the card thingy with it on it.) The last time I thought of buying a stamp just to have was the computer game character ones, with Sonic and Mario.

              England not getting ideal prep as the Gender gap pay issue hits the fan as the RFU confirm no FT contracts for England players after the WRWC. TBH had been well flagged in advance, no other country is doing so, 7's circut and Olympics are the next in the cycle.. still.

                Women's rugby is still basically amateur everywhere because it doesn't attract the crowds or the sponsors to fund pro contracts and is unlikely to do so for some time.

                Better off putting funding into developing the game at grass roots level so that it will eventually have the kind of support that will enable players to make a living at it.

                      Niamh has had zero luck this year
                      "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

                      Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                        That's just desperate luck both for her and for the squad.

                        http://www.irishexaminer.com/breakin...up-800178.html

                        The Ireland Women's management team have confirmed that captain Niamh Briggs has been ruled out of the Women's Rugby World Cup, writes Ciara Phelan.
                        Despite successfully recovering from a hamstring injury which ruled her out of the Six Nations, she has now picked up another injury.
                        The experienced full-back suffered an injury to her Achilles while training.
                        Tom Tierney, Ireland's Women's head coach has said the team and management are really disappointed for Niamh.
                        "Both the players and management are really disappointed for Niamh as everyone has seen the incredible work and effort she's put in over the last number of months in an attempt to get herself right for this tournament," he said.
                        "For her to have recovered well from her hamstring injury and then suffer a new injury is really unfortunate for her, as everyone knows how much she was looking forward to leading the team in the World Cup."
                        Kerry native, Louise Galvin, has been called into the squad as replacement for Niamh.
                        A new Ireland Captain to lead the team during the Women's Rugby World Cup campaign will be confirmed by the Ireland Women's Management team in the coming days.
                        Hosts Ireland kick off their World Cup campaign against Australia at Dublin's UCD Bowl on August 9.
                        Tis but a scratch.

                              Corkery looking for a bit of attention there it seems.
                              "It’s not the team you support, it’s the club you should support. The team on the pitch will ebb and flow because that’s the nature of sport. No team has ever been successful decade on decade. The club has the history and that’s the passion you should have."
