Creggs second team good league win v Claremorris

12

Creggs 2nds  8,    Claremorris RFC  3.

Creggs 2nds recent good run continued in Sundays Connacht Junior 2 League fixture at the Green against a tough and highly competitive Claremorris team.

Creggs dominated the early exchanges and went ahead with a well-struck penalty by outhalf Ger Heneghan after 12 minutes. 

Shortly afterwards Heneghan executed a fine crossfield kick which paved the way for fullback Michael Holland to touch down for a try in the left corner with the Claremorris defence caught off-guard.

Claremorris gradually began to ask more questions of tbe Creggs defence with some powerful bursts by their forwards and slick handling by their backline. Claremorris narrowed the gap to 8 3 midway through the second half with a penalty after Creggs were caught offside in midfield.

The Seconds Team have games in hand, with three away League games left to play. In this division, the teams that finish in third to sixth positions play in two quarter-finals, with the winners of those facing the top two teams in the semi-finals.

Creggs finished strongly to close out the game but Claremorris battled right to the end and deserve great credit for their contribution to this lively encounter. 

Creggs face a difficult game away to Oughterard RFC next Sunday but this ever improving squad can look forward to the game with confidence.

Creggs: Michael Holland, John Scroope, Ruairi OBrolochain, Johnny Blighe, Conor Gore, Ger Heneghan, Michael Farrell, Paul Mc Neill, Enda Tully, Tommy Curley, Micheal Glennon, Kevin Rushe, Dan Butt, Michael Feeley, Eoghan Cahill, Stephen Crehan, Enda Garvey, Barry Egan, David Hoare, Graham Curran, Tom Coleman, Mattie Corcoran, Seamus Collins, Declan Nee, Matthew Butt, and Jack Haugh,

Training continues on Tuesday and Friday nights with returning and new players always welcome. Contact Team Manager Sean Brandon or Coaches: Bernard Kilcommins, Mattie Corcoran, and Vincent Collins.

Creggs RFC were honoured today with a visit from Ireland and Lions star Gordon Darcy. Beautiful weather and a large socially distanced crowd welcomed Gordon and his brother Ian to Creggs. He is on day two of a four day 850km charity cycle raising funds for Barretstown.
Gordon now a successful children's book author had many young fans waiting for him with copies of his books for signing. Gordon Darcy complimented Creggs RFC on the fabulous new development (dressing rooms and gym) which is under construction and the 4g pitch which is the only one of its kind in Connacht.
He also commended the policy which sees the facility used by other local sports clubs.
We wish Gordon well as he endeavors to complete his journey back to Dublin at the weekend.
A legend in every sense of the word.
