The Irish team that defeated Japan in the frst test
TULLAMORE Rugby Club have extended an open invitation to members and locals to watch the Ireland v Japan womens' rugby international next Saturday in their club house.
Four former and current Tullamore players featured in Ireland's win over Japan last Saturday and will feature again in the second test which takes place in Japan at 11am Irish time.
Kilcormac woman, Nichola Fryday, Tullamore's Ailsa Hughes and Clara's Aoife Dalton started last Saturday while Kilcavan's Leah Tarpey came on as a replacement.
Team captain Fryday and Hughes started their careers in Tullamore and now play with Exeter Chiefs and Railway Union, respectively. Dalton recently switched from Tullamore to Old Belvedere while Tarpey is still playing with Tullamore.
The Tullamore RFC club house in Spollanstown will be open from 10.30am and the club would like to see a good turnout to support and celebrate their local heroes. They have extended an invite to all, especially to younger members, and any family members, relations, friends of the ladies from Tullamore RFC who are involved.
