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.

The u20’s are on a good run of form accounting for Cork Con and UCC in their last two outings.

Last weekend saw them travel to play unbeaten UCC who have been the pacesetters so far this season under the watchful eye of former Munster & Ireland Senior head Coach Declan Kidney. UCC were first to score and led 3-0 for most of the first half but it was Bruff who went into the break 3-7 to the good thanks to a Liam Barrett try after thirty seven minutes which Kevin McManus converted.

Bruff started the second half as they had finished the first and were on the score board again shortly after half time when Brian Bulfin was on hand to touch down for a second Bruff try after a driving maul inside the homesides 22. Kevin McManus added the conversion which put Bruff into a 3-14 lead. UCC hit back with a converted try of their own to make it 10-14 which made for a tense finish. Bruff put the game to bed in the seventieth minute when Kevin McManus touched down for Bruff’s third try which he converted to make it 10-21.

The previous week the u20’s had another great win beating Cork Con 27-14 at home in Kilballyowen. Bruff hads two tries each from Jack O Grady and Liam Tracey with Kevin McManus kicking 7 points from the boot.

The two wins have moved Bruff into fifth in the league up from eight pre-Christmas. Next game is scheduled for this Saturday 21 Jan at 13.30 Vr Young Munsters

The u20’s guaranteed themselves a place in phase 2 of u20’s S/W Conference with a 29-20 bonus point victory over Buccaneers on Saturday. Bruff had tries from Liam Tracey, James Guina, Cian Tierney and Paul Downes. Downes also chipped in with 9 points from the kicking tee. The 20’s still have 1 game to play in the first part of the league away to Galwegians before they go into competition with the teams from the Cork half of the league next month. This is a team full of potential but have yet to peak this season. If they can get a run of consistent performances together there’s no doubt that they can compete with any of the teams left in the competition.
Team: 15. Brian Fanning 14. Shane Doona 13. Liam Treacy 12. Cian Tierney 11. James Guina 10. Paul Downes 9. David O’Grady 8. Thomas O’Dwyer 7. Niall Mallon 6.Darragh Fanning 5. Adam O Brien 4. James Keogh 3. Brendan Keogh 2. Eamon O’Dea 1. Shane Breen
Subs, John Carew, Eric Finn, Chris Casey, Robert Laffan, John Richardson, Killian O Riordan, Ciaran Ryan, Conor O Dwyer
