The women’s 15’s national team re-started its operations in the summer of 2017 after a three-year break. After the selection camp held in July 2017, approximately 50 players were selected to the national team training group. The reformed national team had its first match in October 2017 in Eerikkilä, when they played a friendly against Sweden’s national team.
The women’s 15’s NT is currently preparing for the Rugby Europe Women’s Trophy tournament, which is held in Switzerland in October 2018. In preparation of the main event of 2018, the 15’s NT is playing warm-up matches against Turku Swans in Finland and against the Spanish Majadahonda Rugby Club in Madrid later this spring. We are also interested in arranging friendly matches against other national teams or international teams to help develop our NT.
The women’s 15’s national team management comprises of head coach Henri Tyrväinen, assistant coaches Matti Keränen, Joonas Lahtinen, Antti Partanen and Petri Sallansalo, team manager Sini Hakkarainen and physio Riikka Nortia.
