lcrestThe senior first XV kicked off the new season with a close Charity Cup defeat to Garryowen in Kilballyowen this afternoon, but there were plenty of positives to take from the game for Bruff. Declan Bannon did all the scoring for Bruff, scoring four penalties, a conversion and a length of the field intercept try. Bruff led for large patches of the game and there was a huge improvement from the warm-up game against Nenagh two week’s ago.

The Bruff team lined out as follows:

1. Davy Horan (c) 2. Johnny Clery 3. Stephen Foster 4. Michael Cooke 5. Ger O’Connell 6. Ollie White 7. Andrew White 8. Danny Keogh 9. Tony Cahill 10. Brian Cahill 11. Shane Doona 12. Darragh Mulcahy 13. Declan Bannon 14. Cian Tierney 15. Davy Grady

Subs – 16. Michael Lynch 17. Ray Roche 18. Colum O’Sullivan 19. Pat Lynch 20. Mikey 21. Gary Leonard 22. Mark Cosgrove

It must be described as  battling performance in very difficult conditions after a long trek to County Derry.  Great Credit must be given to the players and indeed with a little more luck we could have left with all 4 points.  After a very positive start, a harsh yellow card for Killian Ansboro on 16 mins saw Rainey take a 3 -0 shortly afterwards. Declan Bannon replied for us leaving half time score at 3 points each. Colm O Sullivan was very unlucky not to touch down during the first half and when Declan Bannon slotted a second penalty early in the second half a surprise looked on the cards. However Raineys second rower Sheils got over the line for a try mid way through second half  which was converted by their fullback O’Connor. Once again Bruff came back a a 3rd Bannon penalty left the bare minimum between the teams.  The last 10 mins were played in the Bruff 22 and some resolute defending saw us defend the losing bonus point. Final Score Rainey 10 Bruff 9.  A big thank you to our hosts who were as ever very hospitable and gracious. Next match for our seniors is Old Wesley away on the 23rd Nov.
