Depending on how the Old Crescent team is picked before kickoff next Saturday we could have a situation where two thirds of the Old Crescent front row would be from last years Bruff squad. In any case good luck to the Calf and Simon in the future (Not next w’end obviously). Nothing like a hint of spice to give an edge to a game…….

It’s interesting that we haven’t met Old Crescent first XV competitively since we became a senior club (I am willing to be corrected on this if anyone knows differently, I can’t remember any fixture) but as a junior club we had a fairly good record against them and we hadn’t lost against their senior team in the previous two or three years prior to AIL status in Senior Cup outings etc. I remember one of our long time players (GARDA AT THAT) running in a couple of tries against them one evening in Kilballyowen, a game which got us to a Senior Cup Semi-final place (While a Junior club) and a drubbing by Shannon’s full squad incl. Lacy, Galway & Co.

Anyone roll it on boys, 2nd last weekend before the AIB League starts away to Derry (27th Oct.) , I’m away to spend half an hour updating the fixtures/results list…
