                 The 6 Nations takes a break this coming weekend, so as not to clash with the big Munster Junior Cup clash between Youghal and Cork Constitution at Frogmore on Sunday afternoon at 2.30 pm. Well, not really, but it is going to be one hell of a game. This is one competition that is taken very seriously by the senior clubs in the province and is also a chance for the younger clubs to measure themselves against some of the best teams at this level.
                  The Women's XV have a cup fixture against Young Munster, also at Frogmore at 1 pm and this should be an interesting opener. We need as much support as possible for this very attractive fixture so why not come along to enjoy the sport.

The Youghal Women’s XV played host to a Shannon team that have been putting in some very impressive performances this year, on Sunday 16th January following the Christmas break. Youghal started off with a degree of uncertainty and were penalised within the range of Shannon’s out half who slotted it over with ease. This gave the visitors the confidence to try to drive home their early dominance and they launched a series of attacks which dragged the home defence around the field, creating the gaps that eventually led to the opening try of the game. Youghal didn’t lie down, but they were having difficulty retaining possession and position and as a result were always under pressure.  The Shannon defence was calm and organised and were able to snuff out all threats to their try line.  With the visitors comfortably on top a clever break by their outhalf completely wrong footed the defence and she was able to outpace the cover to touch down under the posts for her sides second try.  The conversion made the half time score, Youghal-0, Shannon-15.

As the second half kicked off the home team had it all to do and what is certain is that there is no shortage of heart among this group and there was never any fear that their heads would drop. The rucks and mauls were contested with more vigour and soon it was clear that they were matching their opponents physically up front. Kate Sheehan, who continues to impress with every outing was giving a display of attacking fullback play that was breathtaking. Her timing and lines of running were causing jitters in the Shannon defence on every attack. It was no wonder that one of these runs yielded up the try of the match as she weaved her way through a forest of defenders before crossing for the line. Kate might have deserved “player of the match” for her efforts in this second half but to be fair to her team mates, the difference was that they were now winning enough ball to give her the opportunity to shine. Youghal continued to have the upper hand but Shannon are a seriously good team and they were only ever going to be beaten over 80 minutes. The final score Youghal-5, Shannon-15.
