NUIG proved too strong for Creggs in Sunday’s Junior 2 league game at Dangan. However, Creggs battled bravely throughout an entertaining contest,but NUIG pulled away in the final quarter with a number of well worked tries to run out worthy winners. NUIG took an early lead with a try by No. 8 Sean O Gorman, and went further ahead with a try by winger Clement Dufour,with fullback Colm MC Kay also landing a penalty . Creggs stormed into the game during the second quarter, and a fine move yielded a try by Alan Glennon, which Rory Collins converted to leave the halftime score at 13-7. NUIG showed their quality in the closing stages with their slick handling and excellent support play carving holes in the overworked Creggs defence to run in three further tries . Creggs have a home game against Connemara next Sunday,kickoff 2.30pm at the Green. CREGGS.

Hi Folks,
Creggs Rugby Club are looking to take part in this year’s Big Rugby Run on May 22nd. The event format will see each registered team committing to running the 42-kilometer distance of a full marathon in your club colours – all while carrying a rugby ball! 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.
If interested, please let us know and once we have numbers competing, we will create a text group where all information will be put up for the next steps to follow. For any questions before signing up contact Kenneth Loughrey on 0857664010 or go to www.psaacademies.com/thebigrugbyrun for information.
