Arklow go ladies gaga as twin teams taste victory
The 30th of January will go down as a day to remember in the annals of Arklow Rugby Club when two ladies teams took to the field at The Oval.
Up first was The Arklow Jaguars (U17 ladies) side which took on Tullow as a curtain-raiser for the senior ladies game. Supporters were treated to end-to-end rugby by both teams. Arklow Jaguars ran out winners 35-17, a remarkable achievement given they were only formed at the end of 2010.
Next up, the women's senior team Arklow Amazons took on the Gorey Ladies winning 12-10 in a last-minute scheduled encounter (after the cancellation of an earlier fixture against Mullingar).
Both teams train in the Oval on Wednesday night with the Amazons also training on Friday nights. Both teams are always looking to welcome new members. Training starts at 7.30pm ... why not pop along and see what this exciting side of rugby is all about.
