#EnergiaAIL Game Of The Week: Suttonians v Galwegians

This week’s #EnergiaAIL Game Of The Week is another thrilling contest from the Conference section of the Energia Women’s All-Ireland League.

Suttonians and Galwegians put their post-Christmas winning streaks on the line at the JJ McDowell Memorial Grounds with an eye on making the Conference final on Saturday, February 26.

The game in full goes live on the Irish Rugby YouTube channel at 8pm, with commentary from Larissa Muldoon and Stuart McAvoy.

Play-making centre Catherine Martin and scrum half Emily McKeown (2) starred in attack during Sutts’ 26-19 bonus point triumph.

In-form flanker Lisa-Marie Murphy bagged a brace of tries for Galwegians, who drop down to third place following Ballincollig’s well-judged 22-10 success at home to Cooke.
