Our seniors travelled to Thomond on Friday night last for Rd 10 of the ail, in what turned out to a tough close game that saw Thomond win out on a 22-17 scoreline Thomond kicked off and spend the first 10 mins inside our and after we managed get into opposition territory we went ahead through Kevin McManus wit a 3 pointer Thomond levelled and went 10-3 with a try and convert, they extended their lead to 15-3 and we managed to get it back to 15-6 on half time. The second half saw Thomond go ahead with a pen try to make it 22-6 we clawed it back to 22-11 with a try from Johnny Cleary in the corner and after another penalty from Kevin it was 22-14. There was plenty of time on the clock hopes were high when when we scored a try with less than 10 remaining only to be disallowed we mangaged to come away with a bonus point from the boot of Kevin and when the whistle was blown there wasn’t time for another play, it was a very frustrating night on a lot of aspects of the game but one has sometimes to bite the lip and move on. Sat next we entertain Malahide and let’s hope we’ll have some injured players back.
