Last Saturday saw us make the trip to Clonmel in what were bitterly cold conditions in rd 8 of the Ail. We played into the wind in the first half and we dominated the early exchanges only to go behind to a Clonmel try after 10.  We continued to take the game to the home side but went further behind from a pen. After enduring some pressure from the home side we found ourselves inside the Clonmel 22 and after some excellent retention from the lads Johnny Cleary went in near the posts Kevin added the extras to leave It 10-7 at halftime.  The second half was a very close affair with Clonmel pushing themselves further ahead with a try and pen,  Bruff replied with a pen and drop goal from Kevin to leave the score 18-13 with less than 10 to go.  We spent the remainder of the game inside the Clonmel 22 but credit to Clonmel for excellent defending to win out on the day.  It seems like a regular occurrence now but we wish Tom o Callaghan a speedy recovery from an injury received during the game.

Wishing Patrick a speedy recovery from everyone at Bruff

On Saturday last we entertained Sunday’s well in Kilballyowen. With a 10 team division a few losses can see you tumble down the table and likewise a few wins can catapult you into a top four position. So every win is precious as every point is. The first half was very even with both sides not creating too many chances and with defenses on top, but before halftime the Well went in front with a number of drives and with bruff having a couple of players in the bin same them take a halftime lead 7-0. The curse of injuries continued in the 2nd half when we lost our 6 Pa Maher with a serious leg injury Pa although still very young in years is developing into a real talent and everyone in the Club wishes him a speedy recovery, while this was a huge setback for the lads they managed to rally and were rewarded with an excellent try after a scrum from the middle of the field saw us move the ball wide with Graham Whelan taking a smashing pass from Jack o Grady went down on the outside to get in for a cracking try Kevin added the extras and the sides were level. Sunday’s well went back in front with a 3 pointer to leave it 10-7 with the game getting near the end we found ourselves with a pen in front of their posts, we took a tap penalty Johnny took it the line and Jack Fitzgerald crashing over, Kevin added the extras to make it 14-10 with time nearly up. The last few minutes were heart in the mouth stuff with the Well pounding our line, credit to our defense who managed to hold out for a valuable win. And while they were a number of yellow cards it was hard fought and sporting. Next Saturday sees us travel to Clonmel for our second last game before the Christmas break.
