Donegal’s Nora Stapleton played her part in Ireland’s first victory at the Women’s Rugby World Cup against the USA on Tuesday Night. The Fahan girl who is better known for her Gaa connection plays her rugby with Old Belvedere and Leinster. Stapleton has played full games in the opening two fixtures. Having lost out in the first match last weekend to the hosts England, the 22-12 win over the American’s was very much needed to keep any hopes alive of a semi final spot. Ireland’s third pool B game is this Saturday against Kazakhstan.
