Rock Women Beat Wicklow
Updated: Nov 9, 2021
Facing high-ranking opposition for the third week running, Wicklow’s young guns went down 63-0 to Blackrock College. A cross-field kick from Beth Roberts found Emer Staunton but that elusive first try was foiled by Blackrock’s scramble defence.
Ireland prop Laura Feely made her ‘Rock debut in a runaway 11-try triumph. Young replacement Maggie Boylan helped herself to four, with a hat-trick for Eimear Corri and a brace from captain Michelle Claffey.
Number 8 Hannah O’Connor’s quartet of conversions took her to the top of the league’s scoring charts on 34 points. Connacht’s Nicole Carroll also kicked well for Suttonians, finishing with 13 points in their 28-12 defeat of Cooke.
