Black Ferns visit buoyant Boyne

Boyne hosted four of the Women's Rugby World Cup winning team, the Black Ferns, in Boyne RFC two days after they won the cup in The Stoop, as Vita Robinson, who played with Boyne in 2009, fulfiled her promise to come to Boyne RFC immediately after the final.

She is also the partner of former Boyne player Hadley Dryden, a member of the club's first Newstalk Provincial Towns Cup winning side in 2009, who was also there with his parents.

A fantastic night was had by all in Shamrock Lodge as the Boyne members, led by the wonderful singing of Seamie Briscoe, Noel Martyn, Noel Coogan and Kevin Woods, joined in the celebrations with the Kiwi girls.

The girls showed that they could not only play rugby but could also deliver some lovely songs from their homeland.
