GRR: Eagle Impact Rugby Academy
The Eagles Impact Rugby Academy boys teams encountered a variety of results over the last couple of days.
The U16s lost a close one to Connacht 24-17 and followed that up with a 17-14 loss to Ulster.
Ya he EIRA Boys U16s ended the Ireland tour with one win and two losses with each game decided by a try or less. Their overall point differential was minus-7.
It's just another rugby tour for the Eagle Impact Rugby Academy girls teams, except of course it's with players they don't know, playing opposition they don't know, with walls that don't go to the ceiling, in a format many are unfamiliar with and ... brace yourselves ... without their phones.
The Eagle Impact Rugby Academy girls teams on tour in Ireland came away with two victories Tuesday.
The U16 girls defeated Connacht U16s 55-5.
Eight players scored nine tries for the tourists. Tahna Wilfley scored two while EIRA got single tries from Carolyn Melody, Drew Dauser, Hazel Pron, Alyssa Post, Jordun Shannonhous, Ceclia Rose, and Cara Doherty.
The Eagle Impact Rugby Academy boys U16s have had little time to revel in their 15-12 victory over Munster.
Even though the EIRA players were up against an older group (a mixture of U16s and U17s to make up for the greater size of the American players), the tourists came away with an impressive victory.
Eagle Impact Rugby Academy logged a busy and fruitful day in games against three Irish provinces Saturday on their multi-team tour.
The girls U18s and U16s went 1-1 vs Leinster, with a 60-meter breakaway try by Annie Henrich the highlight. That try, scored at the end of the game, secured a dramatic 15-14 win for the U18s.
The U16s lost 18-14.
