The team is in town for a match against Ireland at Ashbourne Rugby Club tomorrow and according to Team Manager, Ryan Wilson, the side is looking forward to enjoying all that Dublin has to offer. "The boys will be training at the top quality venues at DIT and all this is in preparation for our second head-to-head clash with Ireland after we beat them in Cardiff. The game will kick off at 12 noon on Saturday 26th August. Afterwards, both teams are staying together to watch the Challenge Cup Final on TV before we head back and enjoy Dublin. The boys can't wait to enjoy the best that Dublin has to offer."

The team had their first training session on Thursday evening in DIT Grangegorman followed by a morning workout at the new state of the art facilities at DIT Broombridge on Friday. 

Best of luck to the Irish and Welsh team in tomorrow's match from all at DIT!
