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.

All 3 teams in action this weekend.
First up was U18s who played A training game Friday with Corrib. A very worthwhile exercise and many thanks to our hosts for making it such an enjoyable evening.
Saturday evening brought Creggs Rfc to Tuam where firstly u14s locked horns. Trys from Ailbhe Gannon,Juno Hayes,Doireann Clancy and Ceoladh Lydon were the topping on a fine team performance for this continually improving group. Strong performances too from Kyri Ruane,Louise Seoige,Sarah Smith and Heidi Watson.
Next up was the U16s. This was a cracker of a game where despite the best efforts of captain Hannah Clarke to drag her side into the game Creggs proved too strong on the day. Experienced players Beibhinn Gleeson,Keanah Irons and Charlotte O Grady continually offered themselves in both attack and defence but the powerful relentless ball carrying Creggs girls were deserving victors.

A great evenings Rugby tonight when Creggs Girls U14 and U16 travelled to play Tuam/Oughterard in Tuam in their first games of the season.

The U14's who had a lot of players playing their first ever game went down to a strong Tuam/Oughterard team but put in a great performance and then the U16"s Girls came out on top in a tough encounter against the same opposition.

Thanks to all that were available to travel tonight.
