U14 League:
Claremorris RFC 0 Creggs RFC 20

Claremorris RFC 0, Creggs Rugby 20.

Creggs Under-14’s had their first Connacht League game of the new year in Dunmore last Saturday morning when they took on Claremorris RFC. Creggs had the better of the early exchanges and took the lead after 10 minutes when good work up front from Lorcan Maher, Luke Divilly and Andrew Naughton created good ball for the Creggs backs and they released Aaron Lyons to score in the corner to take a 5-0 lead, which they held until half time.

Creggs forwards were defending very well in the tight and Ethan Glennon, Diamuid Fahey, Ben Finnerty and Rory Callaghan were prominent in defence and with ball in hand. In the backs Cian Glennon was ensuring good ball for the backs and Brandon Kilcommons, Darragh Kiernan and Liam Egan were excellent in attack and were unlucky with the last pass on a couple of occasions.

Creggs began the second half well, and a break from Lorcan Maher was stopped just short of the 22 and Claremorris were penalised at the breakdown. Mark Purcell converted the penalty to increase the lead to 8-0.

Claremorris then had their best period of pressure after that Creggs score and they forced a lineout 5 metres from the Creggs line however Luke Divilly did well to get a hand to the lineout and Creggs turned over the ball to Aaron Lyons who beat the defender and ran the length of the pitch to score under the posts. Mark Purcell to convert and stretch the lead to 15-0.

Creggs continued to press and were held short on a couple of occasions when Louis McCaffrey and Rory Callaghan were unlucky before Luke Divilly scored from close range in the last minute in the corner to leave the final score Creggs Rugby 20, Claremorris RFC

Creggs Minis will return to training next Saturday at 11am in Creggs.

Hi Folks,
Creggs Rugby Club are looking to take part in this year’s Big Rugby Run on May 22nd. The event format will see each registered team committing to running the 42-kilometer distance of a full marathon in your club colours – all while carrying a rugby ball! This distance will be completed as a relay, by teams of up to 21 members aged 10 and upwards. This means a Minimum of 2km per runner/walker. 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.
If interested, please let us know and once we have numbers competing, we will create a text group where all information will be put up for the next steps to follow. For any questions before signing up contact Kenneth Loughrey on 0857664010 or go to www.psaacademies.com/thebigrugbyrun for information.
