LETTERKENNY RUGBY UNDER-15 GIRLS have been invited to play at Donnybrook at half-time when the Ireland take on Wales in the RBS Women’s Six Nations on Saturday.
Letterkenny will represent Ulster against Connaught team Ballinasloe. This represents lots of hard work both by the team – who only started playing competitive matches this year – and coaches Allen McCrea, Seamus Culhane and James Sparkes.
The girls will play in front of an expected 10,000 crowd, indeed the IRFU had to print more tickets when they heard the Letterkenny ladies were coming.
The girls will be training hard this week to get everything ready for the big day .
Letterkenny U-15 started playing league matches in November and although they have yet to win a match it won’t be long as both the interest and skill levels are rising dramatically.
The team travelled to Enniskillen with a weakened team this week, but ended up losing 39-0.
The main thing was they enjoyed the experience and next time they will be a lot wiser. Stars of the show on tackling alone were Emma Curran, Sara Bundescue and Jade Duffy, who brought off one of the most fantastic try saving tackles of the season, when she tracked back 50 yards on a sodden pitch to bring down their flying winger a yard from the line.
