Ireland women's rugby coach Adam Griggs has named six potential debutants in his 24-player squad for Sunday's November international against Wales at UCD.

Leinster’s Judy Bobbett, Victoria Dabanovich-O’Mahony, Hannah O’Connor, Katie O’Dwyer and Niamh Ní Dhroma, Munster and Ireland Sevens international Dorothy Wall have all been included.

“The camps in Scotland and France were invaluable, it gave us a chance to get quality time together as a squad and feed more information into the players about how we want to go about playing and performing this season," Griggs said ahead of this Sunday's game.

“We were able to travel with a larger playing panel for each camp which gave all the players named in our initial squad the opportunity to put their hand up for selection, which has driven our standards and made sure there’s been high-quality competition for places in this Test match squad named.

“Ultimately we have picked a strong squad with a good mix of youth and experience who we feel can go out and deliver against Wales.”
