Results: Another fantastic win for our senior men’s team, with only one loss in 8 games so far this season. A tricky start for bruff but fantastic resilience shown with the score 0-0 at halftime. Tullamore started the second half with a penalty but bruff scored the first try at the hands of Paul Collins which he converted himself. Tullamore came back with a converted try with only minutes left on the clock. The never say die attitude of bruff prevailed again and after a solid team effort near the try line, rob browne scored a try at the death which was then converted by Paul Collins. The final score was 14-10, our first win away in Tullamore since 2017. That leaves us in fourth place going into the last game of 2023. Our seconds team won 22-10 against Clonmel on Sunday with try’s from Johnny Cleary, Mark O’Connell and Eamonn Cooke with a conversion from Adam O’ Dwyer. We had fantastic underage results with the u14, u16 and u18 girls winning out all their games. A fantastic day for the club having 60 bruff girls playing on Saturday. The u18 white team also had a great win on Friday night against Mallow.
