Ulster U18 Women welcome Leinster U18 Women to Portadown Rugby Club an Sunday afternoon for the second round of the Women’s U18 Interprovincial series. The match kicks off at 12:30.
Leinster clocked up a convincing win against Munster in the opening round and Ulster went down to Connacht with a disappointing second half display in Ballinasloe .
It was all a bit one dimensional from the Ulster girls who do have an exciting back line but they will need to punch round the edges of the rucks more frequently to tie up a few tacklers as even Women’s youth rugby is plagued with incredibly negative defensive tactics.
Ulster have made one change, with the impressive Emma Kearney unavailable the experienced Ava Fannin comes into the front row with Hannah Cooney joining the match day squad.
