In typical Adam Griggs fashion, he brings the England squad to face Ireland in the opening Women’s 6 nations fixture back down to earth by saying that they have “two arms and two legs just like us” as reported by RTE Sport. Anybody used to dealing with Griggs in Lansdowne will know he’s a plain talking serious kind of coach who takes the business of coaching very seriously.
Ireland will face England in the 6 Nations opening fixture this coming Friday night in Energia Park, Donnybrook. KO is at the early time of 5pm Friday.
Lansdowne FC would like to wish Adam and his entire squad the best of luck in the series. Perhaps one day, one of the Lansdowne girls will be included in the squad to represent their Country!
