Ulster U18 Women finished off their interprovincial series with a 5 – 31 win against Munster U18 Women at Barnhall RFC on Saturday afternoon.

The resounding win was orchestrated by a virtuoso performance from Virginia RFC’s Lisa Mullen who scored two tries and kicked three conversions. Lucy Turkington, Aoife Cahill and India Daley also crossed as Ulster recorded a bonus point win.

The series as a whole will be a case of what could have been for  the Ulster youngsters who let slip a winning position against, eventual champions, Connacht U18 in the opening game of the series.

Ulster U18 Women: Toni Macartney, Sophie Kinghan, Amanda McQuade, Kelly McCormill, Zara Flack, Lisa Mullen, Zoe Rafferty, Ella Garland, Aoife Cahill, Ava Fannin, Sorcha Higgins, Naomi McCord, Lucy Turkington, Katie Hetherington, Ciara Byers. Replacements: Cara O’Neil, Delyth Cook, Hannah Cooney, Fern Wilson, India Daley, lauren kilfidder, Emma Ryan, Ruth Gilsenan

Congratulations to Connacht U18 Women on their championship success following a 19 – 21 win against Leinster U18 Women at the same venue.   Final placings shown below.
