Simmons backs women’s rugby with sponsorship deal

International law firm Simmons & Simmons is sponsoring the women’s team at Railway Union RFC in Dublin in the run-up to the TikTok Women’s Six Nations Championship.

The firm wants to promote the tournament and support the progress in the development of the women’s game. 

Rachel Stanton (partner and Simmons & Simmons Ireland country head) said: “It is really important that the women receive the limelight they deserve, they are inspirational athletes and put a huge amount of time and effort into representing their club and country.

“We at Simmons are proud to be sponsoring the senior women’s team at Railway and hope through partnering with them on campaigns such as this that we can help further promote the women’s game.”


John Cronin (director of rugby at Railway Union) adds: "We are really grateful for our partnership with Simmons over the last two years.

“It is this kind of support that helps us attract female athletes into playing rugby and providing them with a platform to excel and achieve success at the highest level of sport."

Simmons also invited some of Railway’s current and former Irish internationals to share their thoughts and predictions for the 2023 championship.
