FEMALE rugby players from the Naas club joined forces with players from Cill Dara to win a plate competition.
The joint Naas/Cill Dara under 18 side won the secondary competition at a provincial blitz competition in Wicklow.
They defeated a strong combination representing the Portarlington and Wexford clubs in the semi final.
In the final they faced New Ross in a game only decided some 3 minutes from time, when a series of quick rucks led to a great team try for the Kildare girls. Fifteen teams from all over Leinster took part.
