Truscott stays positive before daunting Limerick trip

By Ronnie Ingrim

Ulster Women make three personnel changes and one positional to the team that lost to Leinster 38-0 for their visit to Munster this afternoon at Thomond Park (2.30pm).

Niamh Fitzgerald moves across to open side while Shannon Heapes comes in at tighthead prop, Noreen Nethercott at blindside flanker and Peita McAlister on the wing.

There are also four changes to the replacements with Sabrina Higgins, Erin Caughey, Kelly Gormley and Shirelle Wilson included.

Ulster coach Jarrett Truscott realises it will be a difficult assignment.

"Munster are the current inter-provincial title holders and our task will all the more daunting at Thomond Park.

"Nevertheless our second half performance against Leinster at Portadown last Saturday was encouraging with 18-year-old scrum-half Kathryn Dane and winger Amy Davis showing plenty of potential," he said.

Munster make just only one change from the team that recorded an 8-3 win against Connacht in Galway last weekend.
