Our seniors had a change of venue from our usual Friday night lights matches v Bohs and took to the 4g pitch in UL last weekend. Very little separated these two sides and the close score line reflected a toughly fought match. Again, the injuries that seem to be plaguing us all season reared their head and we were unfortunate to lose Richard Mullane to a broken leg. We would like to wish Richie all the best and a speedy recovery. Find the match center here.
Our u20s took to the road to take on Cork Con in the Donal Walsh in Temple Hill on Saturday. The conditions were miserable on the day and the lads put in a valiant effort unfortunately going down to their Cork rivals. The final score read 24-16. Marcus McMenemy and Darren Gavin both bagged tries with Marcus also adding two penalties to his tally on the day. The lads will be looking to turn things around tomorrow night so come along to Coonagh and lend them some support.
Our u10s were split this weekend with one half heading out to UL for a blitz and the other half on the road to Nenagh! The lads in UL had a successful outing while the lads in Nenagh won two and lost one. All of the lads on both sides put in fantastic efforts and we are keeping an eye on them are they are all rising stars!!
Our u8s competed in their first ever blitz in Coonagh last Sunday and had a great outing on the day. It’s fantastic to see so many of the kids out and enjoying rugby!
