McInerney Cup Win for J2’s
The J2’s got their McInerny cup campaign off to a winning start with a hard earned 21pt to 20pt victory over Old Cresent in Rosbrien on Saturday afternoon.  Ritchie McAuliffe playing at full back scored all of Bruff’s 21 points chipping in with 2 tries and the rest from placed balls. Bruff led 13-3 at the break and soon after the interval went ahead 21-6. But Crescent were not going to lie down and fought back with 2 second half tries. Crescent had a kick to win the game with 3 minutes remaining but thankfully for Bruff Brian Clancy’s effort drifted wide of the left hand post.

Load, Point rocket launcher at lower appendage, jump and Fire, blow yourself back to Junior Status………….

We used to call it a rocket jump or “RJ” back in the online “Quakeworld” or “Quake arena” playing days, it was the quickest way to get to a high or out of reach place or just get ureself out of trouble with a little backsplash damage from the rocket explosion. Sometimes it bacfired, you hadn’t enough health and the explosion killed ya, Ohh the memories……..Nights wasted blowing the oline enemies to pieces…..

Well, to me it’s the most apt comparison I can make in regard to the antics of Monivea. After all the hard work in Connacht junior 1 league, then to go through the round robin and end up second, gaining another shot at senior status again by beating the second from bottom Senior Div. 3 team, they go and play an illegal player and fake a name or two on a team sheet. Caught by video camera., oooooooer…

You couldn’t make it up could ya????? Shoot yerself in the foot. And it’s such a hard step up to make, it took us three attempts….

Anyway it looks like Mailo’s Waterpark are back in Division 3 (pending an appeal of course….) Let any others who attempt the same in the future beware, WATERPARK REALLY WATCH THEIR VIDEOS..:-)

Someone has been leaking some nicknames to the guys running the IRFU Website, as you can see from the preview up on the website today.

They put us slight favourites (I think) depending on how you take the last couple of sentences. Whatever way it pans out, Tomorrow is going to be the toughest test of the season. It’s all or nothing……

Good Luck guys. We’ll be roaring as usual.
