PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! "So many unknowns trail the Irish team as they seek to begin their Six Nations campaign against Wales on a high. A lack of game time is the most obvious source of intrigue; having played only twice in a year, their exhaustive time in camp - 20 gatherings, 60 sessions - may have provided many answers, but they won't know their worth until valid questions are asked in a Test arena.Adam Griggs must also battle with the ongoing quest to adapt the team's style of play, absorbing players from the now abandoned professional Sevens circuit, as well as the handful of players who, unlike those based here, have actually been playing competitive rugby in the English league.Tomorrow, then, may not be a game of perfection; rather a quest to iron out as many imperfections as feasible in what should, on paper at least, be an eminently winnable encounter before a crack French team pitch up in Dublin a week later."For the likes of Cliodhna Moloney and Claire Molloy at Wasps, but also Lauren Delany at Sale, it has given them valuable game time," said Griggs."At the same time, it gets you physically conditioned for contact, which is obviously a bonus for them. "We know that's an aspect that will be one of the big things on Saturday, getting up to full speed quickly in terms of the full contact of a Test match. It's valuable on that side of things."But also through December, we couldn't have those players with us, so from that side of things, they have had to get up to speed quickly when they came back to us. So we'll see a good balance with it to be honest.

."He has decided to gamble on only one of his Sevens recruits from the off, with 2018 break-out star Eve Higgins getting the nod outside the experienced Sene Naoupu in midfield; Amee-Leigh Murphy Crowe's ability to convert remains a work in progress.Dorothy Wall has made the transition with relative ease, so too full-back Eimear Considine; there was a time when the sport's supporters here were outraged at 15s losing players to the shorter format but a pandemic has, however temporarily, reversed the trend."When you look at the Sevens players transitioning into the 15s game, it is about multi-skills," added Griggs."In the Sevens game you have so much time with the ball in hand. There is a lot more contact time. You have to make your one-on-one tackles or you are exposed." Ireland: Eimear Considine (Munster); Lauren Delany (Sale Sharks), Eve Higgins (Leinster), Sene Naoupu (Leinster), Beibhinn Parsons (Connacht); Hannah Tyrrell (Leinster), Kathryn Dane (Ulster); Lindsay Peat (Leinster), Cliodhna Moloney (Wasps), Linda Djougang (Leinster); Aoife McDermott (Leinster), Nichola Fryday (Connacht); Dorothy Wall (Munster), Claire Molloy (Wasps), Ciara Griffin (Munster).Replacements: Neve Jones (Ulster), Katie O'Dwyer (Leinster), Laura Feely (Connacht), Brittany Hogan (Ulster), Hannah O'Connor (Leinster), Emily Lane (Munster), Stacey Flood (Leinster), Enya Breen (Munster)."
