A bonus-point win for Old Belvedere over Suttonians at Ollie Campbell Park on Saturday evening saw them move to the top of the Energia AIL table, a point clear of Galwegians in second, writes John Crothers.
A first-half quartet of tries from Katie Whelan, Éadaoin Murtagh, Aoife Dalton and Dannah O’Brien established a 24-0 halftime lead against a spirited Northside outfit who didn’t let their heads drop and were rewarded for their endeavour when Mary Healy’s offload sent Shannon Touhey in for a try, with Órfhlaith Murray’s conversion completing the scoring for the day.
With Blackrock on a week off due to the late withdrawal of Malone from the competition, Railway Union were the other Dublin side in action and they ran out 79-0 winners against newcomers Ballincollig with Aoife Doyle (2), Carmen Rodera (2) and Ailsa Hughes (2) among the try scorers.
The win saw John Cronin’s side move into third just above Rock on points difference.
