Four Portlaoise Rugby Senior Ladies participated in the first ever Women’s Rugby League Championships last weekend.  On Saturday 7th of August, four PRFC Rugby Players, namely Becca Mullins, Robyn Mullins, Ellen Booth and Jenny Keegan travelled to Galway to join their fellow teammates from Barrowcudas (Carlow) women’s rugby league team to play Galway Tribes women’s team. 

 Unfortunately Barrowcudas were unsuccessful against the Galway side losing by two tries, however Portlaoise Robyn Mullin was awarded Player of the match with her fantastic performance and she also secured the opening try for visitors. 

 Rugby League Ireland (RLI) marked International Women’s Day this year with the launch of its first ever Women’s Championship which saw four clubs compete across Ireland to become the inaugural All Ireland Champions.

 This will see the end of the rugby league championship for the women who will now be heading straight into the rugby union season ahead.
