Gorey Local Receives Leinster Senior Rugby Call-Up

On Wednesday, the Leinster Senior Rugby Women’s squad was confirmed for the 2017 Inter-Provincial series…

A total of 34 players have been selected in the squad from 11 clubs from across the province. And now, Gorey RFC and Wexford have a representative on the team.

Caoimhe Molloy, also known as the “Twin Oaks Tank” is based in Clonattin Gorey, a mere two-minute walk away from the Gorey Rugby Club.

In 2015, Caoimhe was selected as captain of the Leinster u-18 team and continues to improve and lead by example. Now, after years of diligence and commitment, she is reaping the rewards after being selected as one of the forwards for the Leinster Senior Women’s upcoming campaign.

Caoimhe and her provincial team-mates will be hoping to repeat the successes of the Leinster Women’s team from last year after they were victorious in the Inter-Provincial series.

Speaking to leinsterrugby.ie recently, the newly selected Leinster women’s coach Adam Griggs stated:

“We’re looking really good. We’ve got a really good squad of girls that have come back from last year and we’ve got a couple of younger ones as well that have come up through the Youths system with the Leinster U18 Girls. It’s good to see them get a chance as well.”

Leinster will begin their defence of the Women’s Interprovincial title away to Ulster at Dromore RFC on Sunday, 3rd December (KO 2pm).
