Weekend Match Reports November 3rd and 4th
Our U8’ss had their second game in 7 days when they took on Corcha Dhuibhne in Cromane on Saturday. The visitors were short of numbers but some of our players played for both sides on the day. Great passing and skills were on show in the slippery conditions with some excellent tries from both sides. All players did really well with Peter, Diarmuid and Alex getting some good scores. Good performances were also put in by Holly, Evan and Seamie. Well done to all!!

An under strength 13 man U16s team took on Newcastlewest-Estuary in a friendly fixture at Ballymalis on Saturday. It was an enjoyable and closely contested game played in 4 periods of 15 minutes. A good opportunity for some players to build game time and better than any training session. The exchanges were close throughout but eventually the visitors pulled away to win 7-19. Killorglin try scored by Derry O’Sullivan and converted from the touchline by James Byrne. Jack O’Brien and Rudy Glinwood caught the eye in open play while James Prendiville and Peadar Whelan had a good day at lineout time. Joe Cronin Langham slotted in well to the unfamiliar scrum half position.
