Bruff played against the strong breeze in the 1st half and managed to apply a lot of pressure to the very much improved Estuary.
Estuary had a very solid scrum and a good half back pair. Bruff threatened a Estuary try line a few times in the first half and but for some good tackling from ERFC and possibly delaying passes a little would have maybe lengthened the distance between the sides. Bruff finally did get through 4 minutes before the break to get a try by Brian Fanning and converted into a strong breeze courtesy of the boot of Anthony Foley.
The 2nd half saw Bruff use the breeze at their back to their full advantage with tries from Liam O’ Dwyer, Darragh Fanning & Rory McMahon with 3 more conversions from the boot of Anthony Foley.
Estuary finished the stronger with good pressure for the last few minutes resulting in a try and unlucky to get another from a very good kick on from their out-half to his centres running on.
