Connacht Rugby U15 Plate semi-final


Oughterard RFC U15’s 12 V 34 Creggs U15’s RFC

Creggs U15’s booked their place in the Connacht plate final with an impressive 34-12 win over Oughterard in Galway on Sunday morning last. Played in overcast but dry conditions the Creggs lads were physically bigger and used their size advantaged to good effect especially the Creggs forwards who were dominant throughout the match.

The away team started stronger and were soon rewarded when Captain Aodah Hession powered over for the first score which Mark Purcell converted. Centre Sam Sullivan was having one of his best games for Creggs powered through for a second try and only excellent and brave defending kept the Oughterard team in the contest. Their efforts were rewarded with a breakaway converted try but the consistent Creggs number 8 Jack Keegan added another try leaving the half time score 17-7 in favour of the away team.

Sullivan added another converted try after the break which ended the game as a contest with Creggs eventually running out comfortable winners 34- 12 and will now play Galwegians in the final at Buccaneers RFC Athlone on Sunday next 24th kick off TBC (see Creggs Facebook page for more info)

This distance will be completed as a relay, by teams of up to 21 members aged 10 and upwards. This means a Minimum of 2km per runner/walker. This year funds raised are going toward initiatives run by Tackle Your Feelings, a mental health and well-being programme ran by the Rugby Player Ireland foundation.
