Our 1sts travelled to a wild and windy Malahide on Saturday in what were probably the worst conditions we played this year, we travelled minus a number of players from our game versus Omagh the previous week,  we kicked off into a gale and had to spend a lot of time in our half but managed to restrict Malahide to 9 pts from 3 pens, we ourselves managed some time in the opposition half and after some excellent retention Davy o Grady ran a great line to go in under the posts Kevin McManus added the extras and it was 9-7.  Malahide added another pen before h/t to go 12-7, the second half saw us take the game to Malahide and after an excellent snipe from Danny Jackson ran in under the posts Kevin added the extras and we led 14-12.  This turned out to be our last score and though our scrum was dominant and our lineout was functioning well we did not seem to get the reward from it. Malahide themselves hit a purple patch in the last 15 and were rewarded with a try after a number of pick and drives on our line they led by 5 with 10 to go and although we had opportunities ourselves to score we were penalised in front of their posts with time nearly up. The game ended 19-14 and we had to settle for a bonus point.

I sure management will be happy with areas of the game and will disappointed with other aspects, but thy don’t have much time to dwell as we entertain our neighbours Thomond on Friday night next at Kilballyowen.
