This Saturday sees us entertain Tullamore rfc in rd 16 of the ail this is our 2nd last home game of the season and an opportunity to get out and show yere support for the boys. Tullamore have been a really difficult team to get the better of in recent seasons so Noel and his management team will need the lads to be really tuned in for this one. We currently lay 3rd in the table so a win would be ideal with just 2 games left after this. Kick of 2.30

Saturday saw us make the long trip to Ballina to take on league leaders in the last of this block of 4 games, which really has taken its toll with a lot of injuries pushing our squad to the limits. We started into a a strong breeze but took an early lead through the boot of Davy o Grady, Ballina replied with a 3 pointer with 10 mins to the break and went 6-3 ahead through the boot of their out half. We took the lead after an excellent line out maul which took us inside the Ballina 22 saw Taylor crossing the line, Davy added the extras to make it 10-6 at half time. The winning and losing of the game came in the first 15 mins of the 2nd half when Ballina scored 3 try’s in a period when we lost Daniel and Cian Tierney who was having an excellent game until then, we had further 2nd half try’s from Kevin McManus and Cian Tierney when he came back on, but Ballina ran out winners on the day. We now have a chance to regroup and get some our injured players back and go after the last 3 games. While winning this division is probably beyond us now we are very much in control of our destination on making the playoffs and when one considers last season it was a different type of playoff we were facing every one should be hugely proud of where we are and where we could have been with more luck on the injury front.
