Our heroic girls in green are scrumthing special

Editor's Viewpoint

Ireland's women rugby players have set the target for their male counterparts during their glorious exploits at the World Cup in France. While they suffered a comprehensive defeat by England yesterday evening, their success in reaching the semi-final of the tournament was an incredible achievement.

They also managed to do something that Ireland's men have never achieved – beat New Zealand. The All-Blacks women were the reigning world champions, which made the Irish victory all the more astonishing.

The girls in green have brought their sport to a much wider audience and they deserve much greater support in future.
