ENNISKILLEN Rugby Club hosted Saturday’s Interprovincial warm-up between Ulster and Connacht with the visitors clinching the victory after intercepting an Ulster move.
After Connacht kicked off this much-anticipated game, the Ulster pack had a few strong carries and it was a lovely short pass to the Ulster outside centre who almost went in to score from the halfway line, but she had the presence of mind to offload to her left-wing colleague, Megan Edwards, to score in the corner after only three minutes.
A tough conversion kick fell just short as the score stayed 5-0.
Connacht responded with an unconverted try of their own after 15 minutes but another sustained period of Ulster pressure saw a chip through into the corner converted into a try by the excellent Ulster 13, Ella Durkan. A great conversion from out wide followed to open up a 12-5 lead.
