There are a small few spaces left on the supporters bus for this AIL kick off game against our “Auld Enemy” Instonians. Thes guys were the only team to beat us last season doing so at just the worst possible time (The Final) so we’ll be looking to return the favour in this first game of our first ever year in Division 2.
Contact Mike O’ Connor or Lil Cahill if you wish to travel.

This encounter ended up a fair bit more one sided than originally  thought. Bruff looked dominant from the off, although the pace of the game was hectic right from the get go.

The Bruff pack were dominant throughout, the Lineouts came together perfectly, Scrums were awesome, driving from Máirtín and Alfie was Excellent. 16 minutes in Máirtín drove over for try number one, to which Davy Maw added the extras, Marty hurt his shoulder in the process and was replaced by Maurice O’Connell.  This was followed four minutes later by John Moore. 12 points up and the game looked almost over from a Clonakilty point of view. Davy Maw missed a penalty on 25, this was then quickly followed by Peter Malone adding try number three on 30 mins, Davy added the extras . The only reply in the first half was a sole penalty from Clon No. 12 Derek Lombard on 37 mins. Bruff went in at half time 19-3 up, a bit of Hanbags just before half time resulting in Captain Cathal O’ Regan being binned for the first eight minutes of the second half.

The second half started with a major push from both sides to get on top. An extremely fast paced first ten minutes finally resulted in Davy Maw kicking a penalty on 47 minutes and  Brian Cahill going over for try number four on 50 minutes, again Davy Adding the extras. On 55 minutes, Clonakilty winger J. O’ Donnell going over for their only try of the game, again the No. 12 adding the extras.

Tha twas the last of the scoring, the only element of note being the binning of Dermot Murnane on 77 minutes and Bruff ran out comfortable winners by 29 points to 10.
