Bruff u20’s will contest the semi-final of the league vs UCC next Saturday Feb 25th thanks to a 35-21 win over UL Boh’s at home in Kilballyowen at the weekend. Bruff went into last weekends game knowing they needed a bonus point win to ensure a play-off place in what was the last round of the league phase of the competition. The pressure didn’t get to them and they delivered in style securing the try bonus before half time. Bruff had 2 tries each from Dylan Reeves-Wasik and Liam Barret with Cian Clifford also getting in for a try. Kevin Mcmanus provided the extras from the boot.

Saturdays game will be a massive challenge travelling to face the run away league leaders UCC in the Mardyke. But Bruff will not fear their opponents haven already beaten them 10-21 when the sides met in early January.

Fixture- UCC u20’s Vs Bruff u20’s – 2.30pm Venue- The Mardyke – Saturday Feb 25th

Squad

Brady Day, Thomas Quigley, Jack Fitzgerald, Tadgh O Dwyer, Cian Mulqueen, Brian Bulfin, Paul Treacy, Sean Hartigan, Niall Byrnes, Cian Clifford, Liam Treacy, Jack O Grady, Conor Fitzpatrick, Liam Barrett, Kevin McManus, Shane Breen, Darren O Farrell, Gareth Cooke, Matten Lockart O Dea, John Bulfin, David Maloney, Thomas Breen, Fergal Cooke, Dylan Reeves- Wasik, Adam Sheehy, Stephen Dunworth, David Moloney, Anthony Foley.

So this is what happened afterwards.

the seniors are at home this Friday night in the UBL when they entertain Kanturk in Kilballyowen.. Bruff had the upper hand when the sides meet in November but Kanturk have shown some good form since that game winning 2 of their last 3 games with the loose coming against league leader Rainey.  The game has a 7.30pm ko and all support would be welcomed. A large crowd is expected so please arrive early.

Fri 10th Feb  — 19:30—Div2CBruff  v  Kanturk– Kilballyowen Park– Referee Karol Collins

The club will also be celebrating the inauguration of our first ever life president Michael (Barlo) O’Donnell .

Mr. Nicholas Cooke, President of Bruff RFC has proposed that the Club appoint a Life President in his last term as President. At a recent committee meeting Nichols proposed Michael (Barlo) O’Donnell as our first recipient of this award. It was unanimously agreed by all attended…

Nicholas invites all our supporters and friends of Mike to this once off event as Mike will be our only Life President.

The ceremony to invest Mike will take place after our senior team’s home fixture (game time 7.30pm) with Kanturk on February 10th at the club pavilion

Nicholas stated that it was in recognition of Mike’s lifelong association as a supporter and player.

In fact Mike played in some of our earliest games in the early 70’s and continued playing until the 90’s.

Mike is a great all round sportsman and played hurling with Bruff and Emmet’s divisional teams but is was rugby that gave Mike the opportunity to meet players and supporters alike from all over.

Mike enjoyed nothing more than travelling away to other teams in the company of people younger than himself and related many a good tale along the way.

His rendition of “A poor farmer” in the sing song was enjoyed by all.

Bruff RFC is particularly pleased that Mike is our first Life President and hope that he will enjoy this special position long into the future
