Irish Schrum-half Catherine Dane is happy that the women’s team’s long wait to return to international action is almost over.

The Irish team will begin their Six Nations campaign in Wales next Saturday, followed by a week later match against France in Dublin.

“We have 20 pitches since we beat Italy in October, so it’s been a long time coming,” Dane said.

“We seem to be strong in training, so I hope it will be effective,” he added.

Speaking on Radio Ulster’s SportSound program, the number nine added, “We hope to stay in a stronger position, but that will not be a problem until we get to the pitch.

England set up a goal scorer last year when they started the game with eight attempts to retain the title 52-10 wins Saturday in Scotland.

Ireland have won three of their last four draws with France last season, including a bonus point victory over Wales in Dublin.

“It was a huge success, we lost to Wales in Cardiff last year, so going to Cardiff Arms Park has always been a challenge,” Dane said.

“We’re in a very good position and can’t wait to start, but Wales are in the same position, so they want to go too.

“I won’t believe it until I get to the pitch, but it would be great to have all this work and preparation done.

“We have a lot of young people on the team, there are more girls in the rugby sevens, so they give an extra dimension to our game and play on the game plan. Really exciting.

“England are a very strong team and they have the aura of playing club rugby, which will help them.”
