- Bruff U18.5 at home to Clanwilliam
After a big turnout at training on Friday night the Bruff U18.5 carried their good form in training through to the match today. From the first kick of the match Bruff immediately went on the attack with the ball in hand. There was great continuity in bruffs play with both backs and forwards linking with confidence. Bruffs captain Shane Duggan, Oisin Feeley and Jimmy Stokes were very much to the fore with some big carries in this period. Eventually the Bruff pressure was rewarded with a fine break and try from Shane Duggan converted by Conor Dowling. Bruff were dominant in this period with some fine line out work by Danny Kavanagh Padraig Vaughan and Ciaran Lefebvre. In the backs Ethan Cumes, Sean O’Neill, Conor Dowling, and Shane Duggan again put in some big hits in the middle of the field, Jack Mcnamara, Hugh Clogan, safe in defense and elusive in attack. It wasn’t long before Bruff were scoring their second try, again scored by Shane Duggan, Conor Dowling who was distributing great ball from the number nine position was unlucky with the conversion. In fairness to Clanwilliam they upped their game after this score, and they scored a try while a Bruff had a player in the sin bin. They were unable to convert this score. Shane Lynch and Ciaran Cronin kept the Bruff going forward in the scrums and rucks especially while Bruff were down a man. Bruff were full value for their half time lead of 12 to Clanwilliam 5. The second half saw the Adam Casey had to be replaced due to a knee injury because of a late tackle. Adam had been playing some outstanding rugby distributing the ball well from the out-half position and running some great attack lines. He was ably replaced by Darragh O Loughlin, Conor Dowling moved to out half where he kept Clanwilliam pinned back in there owe half with some great touch line kicks. The Bruff half time replacements Tadgh Corkery, Euan Hickey Colin Bresnahan, Oisin Rhatigan and Adam Kelleher all helped in grinding Clanwilliam down which led for a hat trick try for man of the match Shane Duggan. Bruff were over the line on a number of occasions in the second half but were unable to ground the ball. The final score was Bruff 17 Clanwilliam 5.
A good win for Bruff and we wish Adam Casey a speedy recovery.
