Our seniors travelled to Rosbrien to play old crescent in the Charity Cup semi final on Saturday last, and after taking the scalp of Garryowen the week previous we were hoping for a good display again. Once again due various reasons we took to the field with some our young guns and it was very encouraging watching them play with a freedom that management must have been very pleased with. We got off to an excellent start from a line out outside the crescent 22 we mauled to the line when Brendan Keogh touched down. Crescent went ahead with a try 5 mins before h/t but bruff hit back with a superb try before after a great break from scrum half Pa Lloyd before off loading to Tadgh o Dwyer to put us 12-7 ahead at h/t. The second half saw us go further in front when of another line out saw us score in the right corner Flo once again converted to put us 19-7 ahead. Crescent narrowed the gap with a try and with the clock deep into injury time and 2 players in the bin Crescent get the winning score. And while we had one last chance to win it Flo was just off target. The management I’m sure will be very happy with the performances of the lads especially some of the younger lads.

We started our season on Friday night last, in the quarter final of the Charity Cup when we entertained Garryowen in kilballyowen and although we were without some of our more experienced players it allowed management the opportunity to give some our younger players good experience. The game itself was very enjoyable with both sides moving the ball wide Bruff took the lead after 15 with a penalty from Flo but Garryowen went ahead with a try before h/t Bruff regained the lead with another penalty from Flo on the stroke of half time. The second half saw both teams create chances but defenses were good and the game finished out 6-5 to Bruff. Next up is old crescent on Saturday next.
