It was another weekend of solid rugby from our thirds to our underage. We had a win on the road from our u15s girls team who travelled to Killaloe/Ballina. It was a tough match but the girls held their own and got some fantastic scores emerging victorious for a finish! Both our U15s and U18s girls are in Cup finals in Munchins on Saturday at 1pm and all support is welcome!
Our U14s got their league campaign off to a good start with a win over UL Bohs/St. Marys in Coonagh on Sunday. They managed to cross the line 6 times for well-organized tries in a great team performance!
Unfortunately for our Shannon/St. Marys U18s it wasn’t to be and they were beaten by Middleton in the Pan Munster on Saturday. It was a really tough match but the U18s dug deep and gave everything and were unfortunate in the end.
The result of the weekend however, must go to our fantastic Thirds who beat Old Crescent by 20-8 in the Gleeson League on Saturday. This result puts the thirds on the top of the league in joint place with Garryowen. It also marks 7 wins from 8 games, they will be lining out against Young Munster this weekend in a match that’s sure to be a tough encounter!
Our u13s are looking great in their new jersey’s kindly sponsored by the Oakwood Arms Hotel in Shannon!! (photo included!)
As the Senior and Junior Cups all kick off for another year, we would like to wish the very best of luck to all of our Shannon RFC players and coaches involved with all squads!
