On sat last we welcomed Ballina rfc in the 4th round of the ail, we were expecting a difficult afternoon from a team that were unbeaten in the league so far and they didn’t disappoint on that front, Bruff started the game with some excellent running rugby and with some fabulous display of handling and offloading Liam Treacy touched down in the corner to go 5-0 up. We continued to dominate and from a terrific maul from the line out saw Tom o Dwyer get the grounding, Kevin McManus add the convert and we were 12-0 in front Ballina pulled back a 3 pointer with a penalty in front of the post, they then got in for a try on the stroke of half time to make it 12-8.  The second half saw both teams giving it their all, with Ballina getting there nose in front with a try to go 13-12 in front, this semmed to ignite the Bruff boys and Liam Treacy added another try and with Kevin’s convert put us ahead 19-13 Ballina to there credit kept plugging away and were awarded with their 3rd try to make the score 19-18, with the clock going in to the last 10 Bruff finished the game with an excellent score from centre Jack o Grady, Kevin added the extras to give us a 5 pointer and deny Ballina a bonus point.

In what was an excellent team performance credit must also go to Ballina for adding to a hugley entertaing game.

Next up on Sat next in Kilballyowen is the vist of Seapoint who have proven to be very difficult opponents in the past, kick off 2.30 so come out and support the lads last Sat it was great to see such a good crowd it makes a huge difference to the players.
