Bruff Seniors traveled to Dooradoyle on Saturday to compete in the Meteor Munster  Sevens Tournament. They were drawn in Group A with Garryowen, Thomond,Midleton, Sundays Well. Bruff defeated Garryowen, Midleton and lost to Thomond. In the last game of the Group stage they needed to beat Sundays Well and score eight tries to win the Group on tries scored.

Bruff beat Sundays Well but could only score 4 tries and this meant that Garryowen won the Group by virtue of having scored 3 more tries than Bruff. Garryowen contested the Senior Cup Final against UL Bohs.

Bruff qualified for the Senior Plate Final against Old Crescent. An exciting game took place and the rugby played was top class. Bruff were down by 5 pts, and  in the last-minute  Mike Carroll scored a brilliant try and Brian Cahill converted to seal the win by 24 pts to  22 pts.

So another trophy wings it way to Killballyowen, well done to all the players and management.

UL Bohs defeated Garryowen in the Senior Cup final.
