Nov 182012

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.
