On Saturday last we welcomed City of Derry in a game that we really needed a result, after what has been somewhat a disappointing and unlucky start to the season. We got off to an excellent start when Johnny Cleary saw a gap and went under the post’s Davy kicked the extras an we were 7-0 up Tom o Dwyer extended the lead 8 minutes later after we had put Derry under a lot of pressure. Credit to Derry who replied with a try and convert to make it 14-7. Johnny help himself to a second try and again Davy kicked the conversation for us to go in at the break 21-10 ahead. The 2nd half saw us lose our hooker to the bin but the rest done him no harm as he claimed the bonus point try after coming back on. Further try’s from Graham Whelan and Mark Fitz his 3rd in 2 games took us to to 38 before Derry scored a consolation try on the stroke of full time to finish 38-15. Next up in 2 weeks time is Omagh away.
