Joan Marc 1 Joan Marc 2 Joan Marc 3

We have to say a fond farewell to Joan Marc Pares, who has lit up Kilballyowen with his friendly smile and easy nature since he arrived here in September. Despite only ever playing basketball in his native Catalonia, he quickly caught on to the rugged nature of our game and became an instant hit with his team mates and friends. One visit to Thomond park and he became a Munster supporter for life. He came to Limerick to improve his English but it is safe to say that he learnt a lot more in his 3 months in Ireland. A firm favourite in 3rd year in Hospital secondary school he will be missed by everyone who came to know him. Adios Joan Marc, safe journey home and keep in touch with all your friends in Bruff RFC.

U16’s

A try saving hand trip by winger Jason Fitzgibbon on the Young Munster full back in the last play saw the U16s  keep their 100% record at Kilballyowen in a thriller on Sunday. Munsters dominated the opening stages but Bruff defended well. In their first attack the forwards went through the phases and the ball was moved wide for winger Sean McCarthy to score in the corner. Munsters scored a penalty and missed 2 more in a super first half to leave it 5  3 to Bruff at the break.

Early in the second Bruff extended their lead with a great try following great interplay between John Bateman and Michael O Grady for Bateman to touch down. Munsters got in for a good try with 10 mins remaining and it was end to end until Fitzgibbons try saving tackle. It finished 10  8 to Bruff. Next Sunday the u16’s are away to Abbeyfeale

Squad, U16s Callum Winship, Jamie Carey, Michael O’Grady, John Bateman, Jason Fitzgibbon, David Carroll, Martin Carew, Liam Cunningham, Jack O’Malley, Donnacha McCarthy, Jerry O’Dea, Daniel Gleeson, Bradley Riordan, Michael O’Donovan, Joseph O’Connell, Niall Breen, James Hanly, Seamas Bulaeir, Gearoid Moynihan, Declan Kenny, Mark Hanly, Shea Dunworth , Jamie McCarthy , Jack Houlihan, Jack O Connell, Sean McCarthy & Jonathon Fitzpatrick.
