The NUIG women’s rugby team started their season with an emphatic 37-5 victory over AIT/Buccaneers in the Connacht Women’s Development League in Dangan on Wednesday. Full-back Lisa McDonagh touched down for her first of the game after a kick-chase in the first five minutes to initate proceedings against a dogged Athlone side. Debutants Kerrie-Lee Murray and Oliva Quiny added a hat-trick and a try respectively to the score board, while vice-captain Louise Kelly hard work was rewarded with a try towards the end of the game.
