Connacht UNDER-13 A League
Westport RFC 19, Creggs Rugby 14.
Creggs Under-13’s travelled to Westport last Saturday morning for their first Connacht League game. The Under-13 league in non-competitive and is designed to get the lads used to playing the full pitch as they graduate from Mini Rugby. Also, very important, everyone gets a game.
Our Under-13’s show great spirit, for this their first outing. Creggs scored an early try from Jack Donnelly and for long periods it looked like Creggs were set up for a momentus away win against a strong Westport team.
With new players adjusting to a new sport and players adapting to new positions, Aindriu Oates, Sean Allen. John McGuinness looked very assured and linked the play superbly
Shane Maloney showed very well and made some very important tackles. Creggs did get another try from Tiernan Lawlor but it was not enough to save the day with Creggs narrowly losing 19 -14. Well done for a great performance to all the Creggs lads.
Training continues on Tuesday’s at 7pm at the Roscommon Community Sports Park, Lisnamult, in Roscommon Town. New players always made very welcome – come along, have some great fun and join this improving team.
