Connacht Under-16 Cup:
NUIG 17, Creggs RFC 77.
Played in beautiful conditions on a great surface in the University grounds at Dangan in Galway last Saturday, Creggs Under-16’s ran out 77 points to 17 winners over NUIG in the Connacht Under-16 Cup.
Creggs started the game well and got the first try through Aaron Lyons which Mark Purcell converted but within 5 minutes found themselves 10-7 down but after that Creggs took complete control and had further tries through Mark Purcell, Rory Callaghan, Luke Divilly, Ciaran Corcoran (3), David Gaquin (2), Aaron Lyons, Lorcan Maher and Darren Gately while NUIG managed to cross for another try in the second half.
Also excellent for Creggs on the day were Adam Donnelly, Jack Tucker and Cian Glennon. Creggs now have a tough Connacht Cup Quarter-Final draw, when they travel to play Cup favourites Galwegians in two weeks time.
Training continues on Thursdays at 7pm in Astro Turf in Roscommon. New players always welcome.
