#Rowing: UCD made their exit at Henley Women’s Regatta, but Enniskillen moved into the semi-finals today. Newcastle University made a fast start in their quarter-finals of the Aspirational Academic Eights against UCD and built it into a clearwater lead.

 Enniskillen were all set to take on Wimbledon High School, but in the event they were given a row over as Wimbledon did not compete due to a disqualification.
