The thirds were beaten 35-12 by Thomand in the final of the McInerney Cup on Saturday in Annocothy. Bruff went in as underdogs facing a Thomand team yet to be beaten this season in 9 outings.

Four first half penalties by Mark O’Connell kept Bruff in touch and they trailed by just three points, 15-12, at the break. A Glen O’Callaghan try for Thomond set the pattern of the game with further tries credited to Anthony Hartery, Christian Meehan, Pat Deedigan and a terrific try at the death from former Bruff player Jonathon Forde ensuring that Thomand came out victorious.


This was Bruff’s forth final in a row having won the competition on the previous two attempts. Only 5 of last year’s panel started the game this weekend. From lasts years team 4 have retired, 7 have moved on to the senior squad, 2 have emigrated and 3 were out injured.

It was a busy week for the u17’s this week. Following their great win against Thomand on weds night they then set their sights on a taste of what the pan munster comp.will hold for them in the new year. We headed for Highfield in Cork on sun morn. This game was a tough one from start to finish with some very hard hits from either side. The game saw only 1 score and that was a penalty kick that captain Paul Downes sent over for Bruff. F.t score 3-0 to Bruff
