Creggs play Ballinrobe in the Junior Cup on Sunday

16

Creggs Rugby play Ballinrobe RFC in the Heineken Connacht Junior Cup at 2.30pm on next Sunday at the Green.

Both teams have a proud tradition in the Connacht Junior Cup. Ballinrobe actually being the last Mayo team to win it back in 1991.

They defeated Tuam 15-11 last Sunday,and will travel to Creggs backed by players of the calibre of former Connacht underage No.8, Jack Winters, outstanding full-back and captain Peter Cosgrove, Mark Nalty and Peter Costello.

Tom Fleming has been in superb form in the Creggs front-row, with Peter Lohan, Bernard Kilcommons and Kevin Brandon also delivering big performances in recent games.

Cosgrove will line up opposite David Brandon, who has been in outstanding form, while Ger Heneghan has been a major contributor on the scoreboard and in general play.

Captain Tom Callaghan has led the back line admirably all season, but Creggs mustn’t underestimate this powerful Ballinrobe team.

Coaches Kevin ORourke and Liam Callaghan deserve great credit for their efforts in turning the season around,after a difficult start and a good run in the Cup would be most beneficial for 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.
