U-18 girls face Ulster in title bid

Maggie Boylan on the attack for the Munster

Following on from their opening-round win against Leinster, the Munster U-18 Girls made it two-from-two with a 25-5 win over Connacht last Saturday and now face Ulster in Barnhall tomorrow in the knowledge that a win will secure them the interprovincial title.

In last weekend's action in Ballinasloe, Munster number 8 Rebecca Hayes opened the scoring with a try on 15 minutes after good work through the phases.

Ciara Clancy converted and the scrum-half also added a penalty soon after.

Before long Clancy was lining up her third kick at goal, this time converting Dorothy Wall's try, the winger cutting a good line off a solid scrum.

Clancy's first miss of the game came just before the interval when her penalty attempt dropped short to send Munster into the dressing room with a commanding 17-0 advantage.

The Shannon club player was back on target upon the resumption with a second successful penalty, before Connacht struck back via maul for their only try of the game.

However, Stephanie Nunan made certain of victory with Munster's third try in the final quarter when, after some hard yards from the pack, the centre finished off a fine flowing backs move.

Enya Breen was unable to convert with the game finishing up 25-5 to Eugene McCarthy's young charges. Munster U-18 Girls line-up: Muirne Wall; Maggie Boylan, Steffi Nunan, Enya Breen, Dorothy Wall; Emily Lane, Ciara Clancy; Andrea Stock, Orla Curtin, Hayley Betts; Sarah Garrett, Clare Bennett; Katylyn Fleming, Mary Hilda Hurley, Rebecca Hayes. Replacements: Annie Laffan, Caroline Downey, Sarah O'Connor, Rebecca Reilly, Sarah O'Gorman, Leah Turner, Gemma Lane, Jennifer Fogarty.
