A great display of rugby yesterday with Bruff running out 21-17 against the visitors. It was a fine afternoon with a small but freezing breeze that is expected in mid November but condition’s were great for Rugby. There was a great atmosphere with all spectators who enjoyed the game no matter where they hailed from.
Brian Cahill sloted a penalty for a scrum being brought down and the points were levelled dew to the same infringement . Bruff 3-3. A Lovely back-line move produced a try for Tom O Callaghan unfortunately the conversion went off right of post. First half finished Bruff 8-3.
On return it did not take long for Bruff to re-enact their dominance. A one handed pass from Davy Horan to Maurice o Connell for a try then Converted by Brian Cahill was a piece of brilliance.
Shortly after a penalty was moved ten for dissent. Brian Cahill converts Bruff 18-3. The Ulster men deciding the game had gone on too long without them scoring got past the line and slotted the conversion. Bruff 18-10.
A penalty for Bruff not releasing. Brian Cahill converts. Bruff 21-10. In the last ten minutes the heavens opened and everyone squashed into the stand. The weather had opposite effects for each team with a try for Belfast, with Scholes the kicker converting for losing bonus 21-17 at the end.
Truly a great performance the captain showing how its done with new up and comers displaying fantastic rugby. A hard day for Harlequins but stayed fighting and won a bonus point. Bruff now seventh 5 points off quins at 6th. Ballynahinch next who are on top. We had 1 a piece last year with both game being tight. No doubt it will be entertaining.
