The lads put in a great first half performance to run up a 19-0 lead with a strongish breeze at their back at halftime on Saturday last. Máirtín was back to his formidable self and had one of his best displays for some years with strong running and managing to shrug off some fairly serious “Hits”. People are coming around to the idea that the rugby landscape has improved dramatically in the county this season so far.

In fairness to Old Crescent it must be said that they didn’t go down without a fight and a serious second half kick after a fire and brimstone dressing down at the interval meant that the lads didn’t quite have it all to themselves in the early part of the second half. Bruff finished very strongly though and were unlucky not to come away with another try in the final quarter when Eoin Cahill knocked on just between the posts during a very sustained period of Bruff Pressure.Former Bruffian, Cormac Hayes started for Crescent and Simon Malone came on in the second half for them.

Good result, which means we keep our unbeaten record against the Crescent Senior XV, Small and young though it may be.

Apologies, Again I was away after the match and will not be able to get photos up till tomorrow sometime, I still haven’t put up photos from last weeks game or the weeks before.

  1. John,

    We have had a child protection officer in place for the last three years, I think that this may be another duty to be added under his responsibility or may be allocated to the development committees duties. I will be bringing it up tonight at the meeting as I saw that the guidelines had been announced during the past week. The draft guidelines and consultation process had been announced by the IRFU during the summer and I was awaiting the final standard before implementing any of the requirements. There is no “wise” about it, it has to be done and will be legally required AFAIK.

  2. With all the recent legislation and the issuing of (the NSAI) I.S. 357:2007 guidelines, and as it was locally driven, would it be wise for Bruff RFC to appoint a safety officer?

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
