Great Britain programme director, Will Shepherd, said: “Only once since the inauguration of the British & Irish Cup has Great Britain been able to get their name on the trophy – in London in 2019.

“This special group of players has the opportunity to go one better and become the first side sent from Great Britain to claim the British & Irish Cup on Irish soil.

“It’s going to be a very special moment in the 10 year history of the programme.”
