Ranelagh’s Resets

How Ranelagh went from a good team to top four in Europe

Dublin’s Ranelagh Ultimate have had arguably their best season ever. The just finished 4th at XEUCF, their first semi-final appearance at a European event. In fact this was the first time that any Irish open team has broken into quarters, let alone semis. I was impressed by their balanced style of play. This came after winning All-Ireland’s, which qualified them for WUCC next year. How did they make the jump to the next level? They have a strong core of athletic cutters capable of flowing downfield, creative handlers who can work their way through zones or poaches, and disciplined defenders with limitless energy.
