Four Players In The Running For March’s #AILWomensTry Of The Month

Four Players In The Running For March’s #AILWomensTry Of The Month

Four great tries make the shortlist for the #AILWomensTry of the Month for March, with scores included from last month’s Women’s All-Ireland Plate final and the final round of the Women’s All-Ireland League.

Plate finalists Old Belvedere and Railway Union provide one nominee each, as ‘Belvo prop Alice O’Dowd gets the nod for her rampaging finish in the right corner after a deft initial offload from Nora Stapleton to set the attack in motion. Flying Railway winger Stephanie Carroll scored another cracker in the same corner via neat passing from Meg Kendal, Claire Keohane and Katelyn Faust.

Cooke have two tries shortlisted from their exciting 22-20 league victory over St. Mary’s at Shaw’s Bridge. Former international Eliza Downey showed some brilliant pace and footwork from her own 10-metre line, while fellow Ireland-capped player Ilse van Staden used a series of powerful hand-offs to score a superb individual try from closer in.

The winner of the #AILWomensTry of the Month award wins €250 and is entered into the #AILWomensTry of the Season award.
