Flawless ladies despatch Exiles

With a final score of 19 points to nil, Leinster took the spoils in an entertaining, high-tempo encounter with the Exiles at Ashbourne RFC last Friday night.

Leinster's Sophie Spence managed to forge the first try of the game and Nora Stapleton converted it for a seven-nil lead.

The girls in blue crossed for their second of the game wide on the right by Ailis Egan, only this time failing to add the extras.

As with the first half, it was Leinster again who managed to find an extra gear at crucial times and following a good forward lead drive, moved the ball left to Michelle Claffey, who ran the ball in from 25m out.

A nice conversion from wide on the left by Stapleton, brought the score to 19-0.
