Saturday last saw us make the trip to Midelton to play the locals in rd 3 after winning our previous 2 we were hoping to continue the run, but it was a game we never seemed get going we trailed 10-3 at halftime with Kevin getting our 3 pointer. And though we only trailed by 7 we were struggling to get into the game. Midelton went further ahead with a try and a couple of penalties to go 23-3 ahead, we managed to pull a try back through Cian Clifford and though we tried hard for the losing bonus time ran out to finish 23-10. And while we are going through a bit of a crisis with injuries at the moment the break will give management the opportunity to work hard at getting things right for our next game at home in 2 weeks time.

Round 3 of the all Ireland league sees away to Midelton tomorrow k.o 2.30 best of luck to lads
Our 2nds played Nenagh in kilballyowen on Sunday in the 2nds league in what are very important games in the the context of player development and in respect of getting our players back from injury to match fitness. Backboned by our 20s bruff led 14-7 at halftime before adding 3 more try’s in the second half to win 30-26. Manager Kieran Callaghan will have been happy enough considering some of the lads are just coming back from long lay offs.
