The women’s Energia AIL was competed at the weekend, despite clashing with an Ireland Women’s camp. Railway Union and Old Belvedere were able to keep their big guns by rearranging thier game to Thursday night .
The curse of the FRU’s recommendation, as pre-season favourites, has obviously hit Belvo hard with our favourite Aristo’s losing a close one at Park Avenue.
Even the thought of hinting that it might be Blackrock’s year, after their big win against Galwegians, saw the Stradbrook side lose to Boh’s and the league already has a familiar look with the Red Machine and the D4 Usurpers in first and second second place with a 100% record over the two rounds.
At the other end of the table it was good to see our new BFFs TRIBE pick up their first win in the AIL, at Crowley Park, their opponents Glawegians recovering somewhat from last weeks outing to pick up a losing bonus. Malone also got their account up and running with a losing bonus at Belfast rivals Cooke.
The results give the latest league standings as follows.
There were 140 points scored in Week 2 compared to 247 points scored in Week 1.
The week 2 points came from 24 tries and 10 conversions giving an overall conversion rate of 41% which is down a couple of % points from last week.
