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.
