Four Pembrokeshire rugby players are set to face Ireland in the Women's Six Nations this weekend.

The quartet includes Jasmine Joyce, Leucu George, Carys Phillips, and Courtney Keight.

Wales Women's head coach Ioan Cunningham' brings back Joyce for the third-round match with Ireland at Virgin Media Park, Cork, on April 13 at 4.45pm.

George, a former Crymych Ladies player, will form a dynamic partnership with Keira Bevan at half-back.

Carys Phillips, whose father, former Wales international Rowland Phillips hails from St Davids, joins Sisilia Tuipulotu and Gwenllian Pyrs in the front row for the forthcoming game.

Keight from Tenby is set to contribute from the bench.

Gwennan Hopkins is set to make her debut for Wales after being named on the bench.

Ioan Cunningham said: "We have put the fallow week to good use and had a thorough debrief of where we are after the first two games in this Six Nations campaign.

"The focus has been on putting the hard work in and looking at the good things we have done and what we need to tighten up on against Ireland in Cork.

"We produced an impressive performance against England, and we just need to be more clinical and finish of what we are creating in games."

Cunningham focused on Joyce’s return to the field.

He said: "Having a player of the quality of Jaz back is a real boost.

"She has that X-factor, and we will need all her experience against Ireland."

The head coach ended his statement with anticipation of the upcoming challenge.

He said: "We know Ireland at home will be a real challenge, but it is one we are looking forward to and we are determined to produce a performance to make everyone proud."
