Despite a truncated season, there were still 45 games and 342 tries scored in the Energia Women’s All-Ireland League in 2019/20. It amounted to an average of almost eight tries per game and an exciting race to the top of the scoring charts.

The very last game of the Energia All-Ireland League took place on Tuesday March 10th as UL Bohemian hosted Galwegians. The Limerick women’s 67-0 win secured them top spot in the division and included some exceptional tries (below).

Chloe Pearse scored a brace in that game to move her ahead of Railway Union‘s Stephanie Carroll in the try-scoring charts and finish outright with 15 tries.

Pearse was remarkably consistent throughout the league whether as a prop or in the back row. She opened her account with five tries against Malone before going on to score in five consecutive games in the lead up to Christmas.

Stephanie Carroll also averaged more than one try per game. The Limerick flyer managed a four-try haul in games against Galwegians and Cooke and a hat-trick against Suttonians in Round 1.

The overall top scorer for the Energia Women’s All-Ireland League is Hannah O’Connor. It’s been a remarkable season for the number 8, having made her international debut against Wales in November and helped Blackrock College to another top-four finish.

O’Connor’s try-scoring prowess alone saw her tie for fifth with seven tries, but she excelled off the tee as well to kick a further 45 points. She also scored more penalties than anyone else, including three penalties in a Round 11 win against defending champions Railway Union.

Nicole Fitzgerald led the way as the top kicker in the division this season with a remarkable 56 pts for UL Bohemian.

UL Bohemian and Railway Union both led the way for range of try scorers with 19 different try scorers before Christmas. The two clubs finished with 27 different try scorers before the campaign was brought to a halt. Malone doubled their tally in the same period.
