Bray People - - Bray Sport -

Cill Dara 5, Rath­drum 22: The Rath­drum Women’s rugby team trav­elled to Cill Dara on Satur­day for the third leg of their Le­in­ster Round Robin.

The first twenty min­utes were a very evenly matched af­fair. But even­tu­ally Rath­drum got the up­per hand and used the boot of Mo Dowl­ing to great ef­fect, keep­ing the home side pinned in their own half. From a Cill Dara li­ne­out near the home sides try line, the Rath­drum for­wards burst through the line, pres­suris­ing the out­half who dropped the pass and al­lowed Player of the Day, Ellen Fox to touch­down for Rath­drum’s first try.

Thirty-two min­utes into the first half, af­ter Dowl­ing prob­ing deep into the home sides half, Ellen Fox ripped Cill Dara ball from the en­su­ing maul and got it to Tammy Breen who passed to Ciara Healy be­fore be­ing hauled down, Ciara burst over for Rath­drum’s sec­ond try.

Fif­teen min­utes into the sec­ond half, Rath­drum once again spread the ball wide across the field to winger Tammy Breen who burned her op­po­site num­ber and full back to score in the cor­ner.

Mo Dowl­ing put in a wiper kick from within her half which the Cill Dara full back fum­bled al­low­ing Tammy Breen to pick and off­load to Mo who ran un­der the posts and con­verted her own try. The home side drove over the line for their first points in the dy­ing min­utes of the game. Rath­drum won 22-5.
