Creggs Firsts travel to Ballinrobe in Connacht League
Connaught Junior League

With three rounds left to play Creggs stay top of the table but with a bonus point win last weekend, Castlebar RFC has narrowed that lead to just one point. However, Creggs has a game in hand. This Sunday, Creggs First travel to Ballinrobe RFC, who despite being in the bottom half of the table, the South-Mayo has games in hand and has taken a couple notable scalps this season. It will be a tough outing for the Creggs lads.

With two away games and one home fixture still to be played, there will be no complacency within this squad. The competitive break last weekend will also hopefully have serve them well in advance of the busy coming weeks.

In addition to the three remaining Connacht League matches over the next three consecutive weekends, Creggs will then play the Semi-Final of the Connacht Junior Cup away to Sligo RFC on March 11th. This team is also in the Final of the Curley Cup v Corinthians RFC on March 30th.

Training continues on Tuesday and Friday nights.

Creggs Second Team’s away Connacht League game v Oughterard became a victim of the bad weather last Sunday. That game will now be re-sheduled.
Next Sunday, Creggs Second Team are due to play Loughrea RFC. And if Creggs win those two remaining away games, this ever improving team will have a Connacht League home semi-final

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.
