Ladies ready for Connacht test with Munster decider on the horizon

By Ronnie Ingram

Ulster Girls start firm favourites to defeat Connacht at Athlone tomorrow afternoon (2.30pm) to set up an Inter-Provincial decider against Munster in Dublin the following Sunday.

Ulster make a few changes following their hard earned 10-5 success against Leinster at Armagh last Saturday evening.

The squad is being rotated so Ellie Ingram is given her chance on the wing for Lucinda Kingham and Lisa Mullen comes in for Vikki Irwin at out-half.

The only change in the pack is at No 6 where Keelin Brady replaces the unavailable Bethany McDowell.

Coach Zoe Templeton said: "We have strong running backs including winger Kelly McCormill who dived over for the winning try last week.

"We know Connacht were convincingly defeated by Munster last week but we are far from complacent."

Ulster: E Kearney, S Whiteley, N Jones, C McCormack, N Kingham, K Brady, C Boles, S Cobain, C Rafferty, L Mullen, E Ingram, B Hogan, L McGoldrick, K McCormill, C Browne, G Shrestha, M Brodie, T Millar, K Heatherington, E Rix, V Irwin, L Kingham, D Hughes.
