Our seniors after enduring some frustrating defeats of late got back to winning ways on Saturday last against Omagh scoring 5 try’s in a scoreline of 37-19.  The Team have endured a difficult season on the injury front with some key players missing at different stages of the season.  We started well and scored of a maul with Cillian Rea touching down Kevin McManus added a super conversion to make it 7-0. We doubled our lead after 25 mins when Sean Darcy went over in the same corner again Kevin added the extras. Omagh missed a penalty and Kevin kicked another 3 pointer on the stroke of half time to give us a 17-0 lead. We got off to a good start after half time when Kevin made it 20-0 but credit to Omagh who fought back with a try converted to give them hope but Bruff managed to wipe it out with try from Johnny Cleary to make it 25-7 Kevin was just wide with the convert, Kevin rounded off a fine afternoon with a bonus point try and was unlucky when his conversion hit the post. Graham sealed the win 2 minutes later when he crossed the line Kevin made it 37-7. Omagh to their credit never stopped trying and were rewarded with a penalty try  to make it 37-14 and also had the final say when they scored on the last play to make it 37-19 at full time. While management will be happy overall they will know they will need a similar performance or better when they travel to play league leaders Skerries in Dublin next Saturday.

Our 20s travelled to Musgrave Park to play Highfield in the last league game on the plastic pitch, needing only a point to qualify for the final, the lads some who had to play less than 24 hrs earlier did just that with a losing bonus point 26-19
