Five Leinster players in Irish U-16 squad

Five Leinster players have been named in Una McCarthy's 21-player panel for the upcoming England tests which run from June 26 to 28. Martha Hume-Barber, Juliette King-Hall, Lisa McCarthy, Emily Beatty (pictured) and Aisling Naughton all get the call for the three-match series.

McCarthy will use this panel as a developmental group with the 2010 Europeans in mind, saying: “As this is a non-European competition year for U-16’s and very much about developing players, 21 have been selected with the intention of giving these young players experience of participating in a series of highly competitive matches.

"Having played Belgium at Easter, the majority of that squad remain but a number of new younger players have been added in the hope of building on the progress made over those three matches.”
