UL Women Win Intervarsities

The Division 1 final saw UL go head to head with NUIG. Early exchanges in the game saw the teams testing each other out playing a large amount of the rugby between either 22 before UL out half Anna Caplice broke the dead lock with an excellent line break finishing near the posts.

Centre Maria Moran contributed three tries with the very reliable boot of Sarah Jane Cody providing 5 conversions leaving the final score 50-0 .
