High School Girls
The Eagle Impact Rugby Academy girls teams touring Ireland finished up their trip with a 2-0 day in Belfast.
The U16 Girls beat the Ulster U16s 67-0. The U18 Girls beat Ulster U18s 53-0.
This was EIRA Girls first international tour and they impressed throughout, posting bigger and more dominant scores each time out.
The Eagle Impact Rugby Academy has named its teams for the four teams today, Friday, July 29, against Ulster’s age-grade teams.
The Girls program is coming off a 48-7 win over Leinster U18s, fielding a mixed group of U18s and U16 players. Now the U18s, and U16s face off with Ulster in two separate games:
The Eagle Impact Rugby Academy girls fielded a combined U16/U18 team to face Leinster U18s Tuesday in Dublin, Ireland.
The EIRA side opted for the combined side in part because their U16 players have shown themselves to be able to front up physically against older Irish girls.
That proved to be correct as the EIRA side won 48-7.
Eagle Impact Rugby Academy are right in the middle of their Ireland tour, producing good, competitive games for two boys teams and two girls teams.
It's also a learning experience, culturally as well as with rugby.
On Friday the U16 Boys played Ulster U17s, the U18 Boys played Ulster Clubs U18s, and the two girls teams, U16s and U18s, played Munster's corresponding teams.
Twenty-four teams played in the NAI 7s Girls U18 bracket, and that single bracket produced two champions.
There wasn't really a U18 Elite bracket, but there were teams that declared themselves wanting to play in an elite division.
So everyone was put in the same bracket, but split n the knockout rounds.
