Railway Union continued their charge up the table with a 41-0 defeat of Blackrock at Willow Lodge on Sunday afternoon, boosted by the return of their Sevens stars from Sydney. The combined experience of Irish and Canadian players of sevens and 15s renown brought a six try haul for Railway Union and helped them leap Galwegians into third place in the league as the hunt for the four play-off positions intensifies.

Canadian international Emma Taylor has been making her presence felt on the scoreboard of late and it was she who opened the scoring for the home team, grabbing the ball from a turnover at a scrum and running in for a try.

Kim Flood showed no signs of jetlag on her return to action following Ireland’s fantastic run at the World Sevens Tournament in Sydney last week and the winger helped herself to two tries in the first half down the right wing, converting one of them.
