It Is Semi-Final Time In The SSI Women’s All-Ireland League

The University of Limerick will host two Student Sport Ireland Women’s Rugby All-Ireland League semi-finals today. On International Women’s Day, both games are set to showcase the best of Women’s sport, and Women’s rugby in particular.

Both of those last-four ties will take place on the 4G pitch on UL’s North Campus. At 3pm, the Division 2 semi-final will be UL 2 versus DCU 2. This will be a 10-a side fixture. A hard match to call as both teams have shown serious promise and talent throughout the league.
At 5.30pm UL will take on UCC. UL have gone the entire season unbeaten in the league but were shaken last week by NUIG in the Intervarsity competition semi-final where they lost 10-0. NUIG ran out winners in that tournament against a depleted DCU team.

UL went on to win the Shield against a tough IT Carlow team, triumphing 17-5, and this is sure to be another testing encounter for the table toppers against a determined and well-drilled UCC team. 
On the other side of the semi-final draw in Division 1, NUIG host DCU in Galway. NUIG will be hoping to build on last week’s varsity success, while DCU will be looking to avenge last week’s 27-0 Intervarsity final result.
In the other Division 2 semi-final, Athlone IT are at home to Sligo IT. Athlone IT go into this game having won all five of their league fixtures, while the Sligo side have won two of the five games. This should be a free-flowing match with lots of scores going by previous encounters.
