The Bruff Under 16 team made the trip to Waterpark today but unfortunately the trip turned out to be an unsuccessful one. The Bruff lads were up against a stronger well drilled Waterpark side. All the Waterpark scores were in the first half withe the exception of one try in the second half. Though the Bruff lads put in a stronger second half the game finished 22 – 0 to Waterpark. Well done to the lads in getting this far in the competition and showing that even with a small panel of players you can achieve beyond expectations.

This pan Munster playoff match was not for the faint hearted. Bruff opened the scoring on 25 min. Penalty by Jack Barrett. The half time score was  3 – 0 to Bruff. With 45 mins gone Bruff scored the first try through Brendan Gleeson,  good work by the forwards for Gleeson to crash over to make the score 8 -0 to Bruff .

Young Munster got into the game on the 50 minute with a converted try  to make the score 8-7. Young. Munster reaped rewards from Bruff errors to score their second try on 55 minutes which was converted to make it 14-8 to the cookies. With Baltic conditions and the wind blowing into their faces and time running out it looked as if it wasn’t going to be our day. Through a great break by Robbie Holmes from his own 22 m to the cookies 22 m set up the final few minutes of drama. The Bruff forwards rucked and mauled their way to the cookies try line for Sean Cregan to crash over  to make the score 14 -13 to Young Munster. The drama was to continue with Ross O’ Brien May stepping up to take the convert. To every one on the side line this kick looked an easy kick. Not the normal place kicker Ross stepped up with great composure to slot the kick 15-14 to Bruff.

The last four minutes seemed to last forever but Bruff showed great character to see out the game and win. Well done to team and coaches on reaching the last 8 in the pan Munster. For the parents looking for something to do next Sunday it’s a trip to Waterford to take on Waterpark in the Pan Munster Quarter Final.
