Five U13’s girls’ teams took to the pitches for the first time in Connacht Rugby’s history on Saturday morning in Tuam RFC. Monivea, Corinthians, Westport, Ballinasloe and Portumna all played each other in the first of 3 blitzes scheduled before Christmas.
Wendy Hickey, WCRO for Connacht Rugby, is delighted with the turnout. “Having U13’s this season is something I was looking to pilot to see if it would be successful this season. We currently have 14 mini clubs as well as many U15’s teams, and some girls fall between both categories, so it was an ideal opportunity to pilot it and it turned out to be a great success. Many thanks to the 5 clubs for taking part, and especially to Tuam RFC for the use of their facilities on the day.”
The next blitz is scheduled for the 28th of November, venue TBC. Any queries, please contact [email protected]
