Creggs were missing a number of their back line for this fixture and were forced into a reshuffle with players playing out of position and in truth they struggled in the first half especially with numerous mistakes and handling errors making it a disappointing first half where they held a 10-5 advantage after two tries from Mairtin Quinn.

The second half produced a much better attacking performance from the Creggs lads with up front Danny Arnold, Amuray Duarte, Killian Higgins and John Martin especially prominent and the introduction of Shane Purcell seemed to bring more fluency to the back line. Tim Lambe and Aodha Hession now beginning to stretch the opposition, with
Eoghan McDonnell and Kaylem Hollian making some good ground with ball in hand.

Creggs scored 4 tries in the second half with Conor Rohan (2), Thomas O Brien and Tom Farrell getting over and two conversions from Mark Purcell completed the scoring.

Creggs Under-18.5’s next game is home to Ballinrobe RFC on the weekend of 16th of December.

A Special Mention to Creggs U13 player Callum Clarke who showed great bravery and calmness recently and saved the life of his grandfather following a near fatal incident on Killina Lake, last Thursday evening.

A Hero among us, well done to Callum and a speedy recovery to his Grandfather Sean.
