The Limerick girls went to Gibson Park in Round 1 and came back with a stunning 62-0 success on October 12. Last Sunday they welcomed Blackrock to the 4G Pitch at UL and that finished in another big 38-15 win to go top of the table.

UL Bohs held a narrow 12-10 lead in the first half but the Dublin outfit couldn't cope with the onslaught in the second half as UL Bohs finished with five different try-scorers.

No 8 Sarah Quinn scored twice while Rachel Allen, Stephanie Nunan, Edel Murphy and Emma Doolan all touched down.

This weekend UL Bohs face off against a struggling Galwegians. They have lost against Blackrock and Suttonians in the opening rounds and look vulnerable on their home patch.

Galwegians conceded 72 points at Stradbrook in the opening weekend and even though it was 7-7 at the interval, tries from Maeve O'Brien, Gráinne Tummon and Molly Fitzgerald secured victory for Suttonians last time.
