Enniskillen Girls Rugby Teams Dominant Against Letterkenny


Enniskillen rugby club's U15 and U18 teams produced two superb performances away to Letterkenny at the weekend, winning 24-10 and 64-0 respectively. The U15 team have already finished second in their league, and began their cup competition with a strong performance against a powerful Letterkenny side. Outstanding tackling from sisters Abbie and Sophie Barrett, and Anna Hughs, thwarted many attacks from the Letterkenny side. The skins forwards, in turn, made good ground with strong carries from Megan Graham, Jenna Love, Lauren Little and Rosie Daley. India Daley produced outstanding power and speed in the backs to burst through the opposition defence for tries, with Michelle Elliott providing great support on the wing. Special credit must be given to Caitlyn Leonard, playing only her second match for the U15 team, as she makes the transition up from mini rugby. Caitlyn produced an incredible performance, especially at the breakdown where she turned over numerous ball to win her team some possession.

The U18 team won 64-0, but the score does nor reflect the courage and commitment of the Letterkenny girls who fought hard throughout and made skins work for every point. To win so handsomely does reflect the organisation of the skins side who played as a coordinated team throughout. The forwards worked their pods over numerous phases, creating a platform for the backs to attack. Powerful running with fluid passing along the backs resulted in well worked tries for Ellie Rix and Rebecca Pennell. Dynamic flanker performances from Katie and Claire Boles kept the skins going forward constantly, and Claire ran in five tries rampaging through midfield. The unsung heroines, as always, were forwards Tammy Millar, Ciara Killile and Amy McNulty, supported at scrum half by Ellie-Mae Maguire. Dependable, rock solid and ever present this season from these girls who are the engine room of the team. Their organisation of the forward pods, clinical line-out work and scrummaging are outstanding and the side continues to go from strength to strength.
