The European Rugby Union is set to unveil its latest pap test results on Tuesday.
The first three rounds of the 2017/18 Rugby World Cup will be played on Friday, July 12, at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.
This means that Ireland will face Australia and Italy on Saturday and Sunday.
The results will then be published on the ERC website on Tuesday, July 13, at 8am.
A preliminary analysis of the results of the tests will be published next week.
The ERC has said that it expects more than 10 million pap tests will take place in Ireland during the World Cup.
It said the results will be used to develop a comprehensive Pap test programme in Ireland and other European countries.
The first test will be taken on July 11, and the next two tests on July 13 and 14.
The preliminary analysis will be available for free download on the ECB’s website.
The ECB is offering the data for free to anyone who has downloaded the EIRR-PoliScan app and is over 18 years old.
Anyone who does not have the app can download the data from the ECB website.
“The EIRP is an invaluable tool for assessing the prevalence of any infection, including the most common, and it will be invaluable to any individual seeking a Pap test,” said EIRM Director of Public Affairs, Joanne O’Brien.
“As a result, we are committed to working closely with our partners in the world’s biggest rugby league competition to provide the best possible service to the rugby community.”
The ERL, which represents Ireland’s national rugby union, said it is “extremely proud” of its role in the development of the new tests and is looking forward to providing the ERL with additional data.
“Our partnership with EIR is an excellent example of how our national rugby league club can collaborate and work together to make sure the data we provide to the ECRR is of high quality,” said Colette Kavanagh, ERL Director of Rugby.
“We are confident that the data provided will provide a valuable tool for everyone to be able to make an informed decision.”
