Our U18 squad take to the field at Garryowen at 7:00pm for the U18 Closed Cup final Vs Shannon RFC.
Give them a shout out if you can.
Thanks to all of the people who nominated Bruff RFC for the chance to come away with a much needed possible 10K when Club Kicker Deccie Bannon lines up at halftime in the AVIVA to attempt a drop goal to earn the spoils.

The following is a snippet from the Turku Eagles Rugby football club based in Finland where former Bruff RFC player John O’Callaghan is now plying his trade.
Primary Position: Blindside Flanker
John was an answer to Jussi’s prayers from the rugby gods. They had asked for an experienced loose forward and that’s what the Eagles got in the spring of 2015. As a player John is a threat to any Finnish pack. His wit and eye for the game teach the most experienced Eagles something in every game. A force to be reckoned with.
Secondary Positions: Number 8
Awards: Forward of the Year 2015
We wish John continued success with his playing career in Finland and who knows he might possibly bring a touring team from the Turku Eagles to Kilballyowen sometime in the near future.
With most teams finished rugby for the season the under 18’s have two cup finals to look forward to.
First up is the North Munster closed cup(limited to non-senior schools players). The game will be played this Friday night at 7pm in Dooradoyle Vs Shannon. Bruff have already secured the league title at this level but will take nothing for granted when they take on a very improved Shannon side. All support is welcome
Bruff and Shannon will also contest the open cup final in a separate fixture, time and date TBC.
Bruff made it to the final thanks to a 23-15 win over Garryownen in the semi final played on Bank Holiday Monday night. Bruff had trys from Johnny Bulfin, Mike O Grady (2) and Odhran Ring in a cracker of a game played in Dooradoyle.
We would urge all supporters to come out and shout on your club.. 🙂
