WATERLOO’S Lauren Day, an Irish International, was celebrating her team’s historic win on Saturday following the Ireland ladies’ first-ever six Nation’s Triple Crown.
Day, 27, had reclaimed her place in the Irish squad after a year of hard work and dedication to regain her fitness, following her omission from last year’s team. She has played a key role in Firwood Waterloo’s success this year and has taken that strength and intelligence with her to the RBS Six Nation games that have seen Ireland beat Wales, England and Scotland last weekend.
Firwood Waterloo captain, Steph Veal, said: “After the disappointment of not being selected last year, Lauren has worked hard to improve her fitness and deserves her selection for the Irish squad.
“She is an important part of our squad and her recent international experience will be valued as we push for premiership promotion.
“This year we have seen a large number of Firwood Waterloo current and ex-players take part in the Six Nations, which has been a great inspiration for many of our development players who are new to rugby. ”
Although Firwood Waterloo has been taking a break from the league to allow for the Six Nations, many of the team will be playing this Sunday as part of the North of England squad.
The team are looking forward to taking on South West at Firwood Waterloo in Blundellsands. Kick off is 2pm and all spectators are welcome.
