Connacht were humbled by an impressive Munster side in Musgrave Park on Saturday as they lost their opening Interprovincial match of the season. Connacht_Women_v_Munster_2010 Having lead 7-5 thanks to an Emma Clery try and Claire Raftery conversion, defensive errors saw Connacht on the back foot, trailing 17-7 at half time. The second half saw a spirited display from the vistors, though their lack of go forward ball ensured a Munster victory, which was sealed by their fourth try of the day towards the end of the game.

Connacht now look forward to two home matches before the Series final. They host Leinster this Saturday at the Sportsground at 2.30 – all support is welcomed.

Connacht: Grainne Egan; Emma Clery, Nuala Ni Chadhain, Christine Arthurs, Sarah Healy; Clare Rafferty, Ailish Toner; Jean Moore, Tosh Haywood, Ruth O’Reilly; Heather Cary, Niamh Dempsey; Maire Murray, Niamh Fitzgerald, Carol Staunton (Capt).
Replacements: Edel Durkin, Samantha Lulham, Maire Hanley, Lyndsey O’Neill, Cliona Hughes, Hortense de Burdoncle de Saint Salvy, Yvonne Delaney, Anne O’Callaghan.
