Ireland battle it out with Italy in the third round of the TikTok Women’s Six Nations today.
It kicks off at 4:45pm at Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi in Italy and will be broadcasted on Virgin Media One.
After a tumultuous week for Women’s Rugby and the IRFU, the country is really getting behind the ladies ahead of the game.
This week, The Telegraph published an investigation into the IRFU and uncovered an alarming amount of evidence that there is deep-rooted sexism within the organisation.
The report showed that the women players were not consulted about the recent kit change.
The IRFU changed the colour of their shorts from white to navy because of “period concerns” but players only learned about it through social media.
It was also reported that a man who was previously high up in Leinster Rugby, made a disgusting misogynistic comment while at am IRFU dinner last month.
He reportedly said: “Who gives a f**k about women’s rugby.”
An extremely hurtful and damaging comment.
The IRFU have denied these claims and have said they invest “millions” to developing the women’s game both professionally and in community levels.
