U18 League:

Creggs U18’s Travelled to Athlone on Monday for an U18 league game and came away with a good 41-10 victory over Buccaneers RFC. Tries from Mairtin Quinn (2) , Shane Purcell (2), Daire Byrne, Jason Hoare and amuray Duarte sealed an impressive victory against a very physical Buccaneers outfit. Creggs had to withstand a very effective pick and drive game from the Home side and only for such good defensive work from Adam Finnerty, Brian Maloney, David O Gorman and Ronan Cahill around the fringes the home side could easily have added further scores. Creggs were finding space out wide and used Daire Byrne and Jason hoare to great effect to punch holes in the defence and quickly recycle and moved the ball through the hands and took some very good scores this way. Training continues for the U18’s next Friday night at 8.30pm in Creggs,

This year funds raised are going toward initiatives run by Tackle Your Feelings, a mental health and well-being programme ran by the Rugby Player Ireland foundation.
