Women’s Interprovincial: Ulster 3 Leinster 26

, ,


Ulster Women went down by 26 points to 3 in the opening Inter Provincial at Ravenhill on Saturday afternoon. The final score masks a much improved performance from Ulster who were competitive for much of the opening exchanges though Leinster’s superior fitness allowed the Dublin side to pull away in the second half.

Ulster started the game the better of the two sides and their aggressive defence forced quite a few errors from their opponents. Driving runs from Lauren Day, Glenda Mellon, Nikita Armstrong and Brigid Reynolds kept play in the the Leinster half and Grace Davitt opened the scoring for the home side, slotting over her second penalty attempt, as Ulster looked good value for their early lead.
