Victorious Vixens vindicate efforts

Last weekend saw Wexford Vixens travel to Barnhall for this season's opening blitz. Going in as the underdog, having been newly promoted to Division 3, the side have set high standards for themselves this season.

Going in as the underdog, having been newly promoted to Division 3, the side have set high standards for themselves this season.

Sunday saw the girls reaping the benefits of a strong pre-season schedule when they came away with wins against hosts Barnhall, Newbridge and Portarlington.

They also escaped narrowly with a 0-0 draw against the powerful Garda side.

The Wexford girls commented on the high standard, of both fitness and skills alike, insisting that a lot of hard work and dedication needs to be continued if they are to maintain the high standard they have set themselves.

Furthermore to the blitz, Leinster coach and former Springboks scrum-half Dan Van Zyl and his assistants were in attendance.

The South African was looking on with a keen eye to spot up-and-coming talent in the province, as the second part of the recent Leinster Women's screening.
