New Interpro series to boost Test hopes

A new Inter-Provincial series has been established in Ireland in the hope of boosting the Irish national side's chances of securing Test Match status in the future.

The Northern Knights, Leinster Lightning and the North West Warriors will contest the championship which will focus on the multi-day game.

Leinster's Kevin O'Brien and Ireland coach Phil Simmons express their support for the new concept.
