The senior team claimed their second win of this AIL campaign beating Sundays Well 27-3 in Bruff on Saturday. After a competitive opening 40 Bruff turned up the heat scoring 21 unanswered points in the second half. Two tries for full back Brendan Deady and another for Finbarr Hogan was enough to see off The Well. Brian Cahill put in another impressive kicking display adding the extra’s for Bruff the best of which was a 50 yard effort in the first half. The lads face a tricky away tie to Old Wesley next weekend who have won 1 lost 1 in their opening two games.
On Sunday the J1 team went down 15-8 to Highfield in Cork. It was a good all round display with the scrum and lineout working well. Behind 8-3 at the break Bruff had a good opening to the second period. A kick ahead for Brian O Connor ended with Marcus Mulvihill touching down for the try. It remained 8 apiece for most of the second half. Highfiled eventually broke down the Bruff defence with 10 minutes remaining and held onto the lead until the end of the 80.
The J2’s played Old Crescent minus 5 of the first 15 team on Saturday afternoon. Thanks to Geno for refereeing the game which ended in a 14-10 win for Crescent.
