CBS Junior Rugby Team reach Semi Final:

11

CBS Roscommon 39 Athenry Vocational School 12

CBS Junior rugby team reached the semi final of the Connacht Schools Junior Development Cup when they guaranteed top spot in their Group with a victory over Athenry Vocational School last Wednesday afternoon in Creggs. Following victories over Davitts of Castlebar and St Marys Ballygar in the earlier rounds, CBS needed to win their last game in the league round to secure top spot and they did this with a 7 try performance.

On a dry pitch and with very little wind, CBS took early control of territory and were winning the battle up front, prominent for CBS early on were John Murray, James Fetherstone, Dylan Ward and Brian Collins who were securing possession at set piece and gaining good ground in the loose and the CBS backs through Michael Farrell Conor Shanagher and Adam Whyte were starting to stretch the opposition early on. CBS scored three tries in the first half through James Regan, Brian Diffley and Jack Gunning and had a 17-7 half time lead.

In the second half the CBS continued to play a very simple game plan by taking the ball on up front and then releasing their explosive back line and they scored another 4 well taken tries in this period, all out wide through James Brandon, Niall Cunniffe, Michael Farrell and Richard Hughes. Showing well for CBS also on the day were Sean Doorly, Dan Butt, Michael Feeley, Oisin Lyons and Ibragim Tsatiashvili.

CBS: Dan Butt, John Murray, Dylan Ward, James Fetherstone, Michael Feeley, Brian Diffley, Brian Collins, Conor Shanagher, Adam Whyte, Aaron Langan, Oisin Lyons, Breen Fallon, Conor McNeill, Theo McGuinness, Ibragim Tsatiashvili, Jack Gunning, Eran Farrell, Richard Hughes, Kyle Hoare, Sean Corcoran, Antonio Dos Santos, James Regan, Sean Dorley, James Brandon, Shane Purcell, Michael Farrell, Niall Cunniffe, Hayden O Reilly

Creggs RFC were honoured today with a visit from Ireland and Lions star Gordon Darcy. Beautiful weather and a large socially distanced crowd welcomed Gordon and his brother Ian to Creggs. He is on day two of a four day 850km charity cycle raising funds for Barretstown.
Gordon now a successful children's book author had many young fans waiting for him with copies of his books for signing. Gordon Darcy complimented Creggs RFC on the fabulous new development (dressing rooms and gym) which is under construction and the 4g pitch which is the only one of its kind in Connacht.
He also commended the policy which sees the facility used by other local sports clubs.
We wish Gordon well as he endeavors to complete his journey back to Dublin at the weekend.
A legend in every sense of the word.
