It was a bright & breezy morning for the Bruff Ladies inaugural Munster Development League outing against St Mary’s RFC on Sunday 7th October. The sides had met a few weeks prior for a friendly match, in Kilballyowen, at which Bruff ran out comfortable winners. The 1st league match however was a much more keenly contested affair. Despite winning the lion’s share of the possession, handling errors saw the Bruff Ladies miss out on numerous scoring chances. Injuries in the second half saw Bruff numbers dwindle but despite a valiant defensive effort, St Mary;s crossed the try line in injury time to put the only score on the board. It finished full time in Healy’s Field St Mary’s RFC 5-0 Bruff.
