U18 Girls team to face Connacht announced
October 6, 2017 / 5:44 pm / Conor Sharkey
The Leinster U18 Girls, sponsored by Bank of Ireland, go into this game knowing they can still claim the Interprovincial title as long as they defeat Connacht on Saturday and Munster fail to win against Ulster.
Last week’s convincing 22-5 win over Ulster put the Leinster girls back in contention after a bonus point defeat to Munster in round one.
In the Leinster backline, Ali Miley moves from outside centre to the right wing to make way for Anna Doyle. Gorey’s Orla Molloy comes in at full-back.
Judy Bobbet will captain the team in an unchanged forward pack.
Kick-off is 1pm at MU Barnhall RFC.
