Lots learned in Longford Ladies first match of the Season 2017-10-02 10:14:00

Leinster Womans League Divsion 4A Tallaght 40 Longford 5

Longford ladies travelled to Tallaght for their first game of the season. For over half the team it was their first ever rugby match. Longford kicked of on a very windy day with the wind at their backs. They were put under pressure straight away by a more experienced Tallaght pack but Longford were making tackles and getting to grips with the pace of the game. This first game was all about experiencing what its like to play rugby and as all the new players got their first tackles in confidence started to increase. The first half was a real eye opener for longford and at half time the were down 25 to 0. The second half started and with the wind against them and it was going to be hard to make ground. But the never say die attitude set in and with some good steals at the lineouts and some great line breaks longford found themselves inside the Tallaght 22. A few good drives by the forwards sucked in Tallaght and with quick  passes out the backs saw Rebecca O Hara score Longfords first try of the season, this was a great team try and the conversion was narrowly missed by captain for the day Emma Dardis. The final score was Tallaght 40 Longford 5 but the longford ladies can be vey proud of their performance with so many players having never played before this was all about learning against a more experienced Tallaght side.
