New Wallaroos given their chance to shine

RUGBY UNION: Wallaroos coach Paul Verrell has showed his faith in Trilleen Pomare in the five-eighth role for Thuursday morning's (4am AEST) World Cup opener against Ireland in Dublin.

West Australian Pomare will make her international debut alongside winger Mahalia Murphy, the only two uuncapped players in the squad captained by sevens Olympic gold medallist Shannon Parry.

"We've put together our strongest team to take on the tournament hosts,” Verrell said.

"Our lead up to the 2017 tournament has been the best yet, with state-based training and the Four Nations tournament (in New Zealand) providing us with a great platform to build from.

"Facing Ireland first up will be a challenge, but it will also provide our girls the chance to set the tone of the tournament.”
