ABBEY LADIES hosted touring side Richmond RFC from Limerick, in a rematch from the Nuns’ Southern
ABBEY LADIES hosted touring side Richmond RFC from Limerick, in a rematch from the Nuns’ Southern Irish tour last year.
The game took centre stage at Rosehill in the absence of a league fixture for the men and the ladies provided an entertaining game of 11 tries — seven to Abbey, four to Richmond.
Jess Potter and Emma Ross-Lee in the forwards were stand out players for the home side whilst Alice Denton in the centre provided the cutting edge.
Abbey quickly ran up a 32-0 lead but in the second half Richmond struck back into contention but their resurgence slammed to a halt when Annette Thomas raced from her own 22 to touch down the last killer score.
