Creggs 33 Old Crescent 24

An experimental Creggs XV played touring side Old Crescent in an entertaining “friendly” fixture at The Green on Saturday.This game,arranged by former Creggs stalwart , Martin Kelly,(still going strong for the Limerick city team),provided a lot of free-flowing rugby with both sides enjoying the perfect playing conditions . Old Crescent opened the scoring with a well-taken try but Stephen Crehan got Creggs back in the game with an opportunist try shortly afterwards. Crescent went 14-5 ahead with another fine try,but Thomas Flynn responded by touching down for a Creggs try after a 50 metre run. Ger Heneghan’s conversion left just two points between the teams at halftime.

In the second half,Creggs added further tries by Declan Nee,Trevor Nee and Thomas Flynn,with Ger Heneghan converting all three tries, while it was appropriate that Martin Kelly should complete the scoring by crossing for a try for Old Crescent on a ground where he played rugby for Creggs for several years.The game which proved very useful for both club,and there were impressive performances from Thomas Flynn,the Nee brothers ,Kevin Raftery,Leo Nally,Enda Tully and Eugene Fleming .

Creggs : Stephen Crehan,David Feeney,Aidan Geraghty,Thomas Flynn,Ger Heneghan,David Hoare,Joe Diffley,Enda Tully,Kevin Brandon,Leo Nally,Kevin Raftery,Eugene Fleming,Trevor Nee,Declan Nee,Tom Fleming,Barry Egan.

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.

Thanks to all that were available to travel tonight.
