Bruff V Rainey OB

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.
