Connacht Junior League

19

Creggs – 36

Buccaneers – 5

With one round of matches remaining, Creggs, following this comprehensive bonus points win over Buccaneers on Sunday, are still in contention for the runners-up spot. On 36 points Creggs are in third place, one point ahead of Dunmore who they face on Sunday. However Ballinasloe in second place on 38 points and away to bottom of the table Ballinrobe look best placed to finish second to Castlebar. Played in biting cold on Sunday this game was over at half time, Buccaneers having conceded six first half tries to Sean Quinn (twice), Ray Cassidy and the entire front row Larry Mannion, Peter Corcoran and Sean Og Higgins getting in on the act. In tricky kicking conditions Creggs added three conversions, one by Noel Flynn and two by Trevor Nee. Turning around 36-0 at the interval Creggs remarkably failed to register again and the only score of the second half was an unconverted Buccaneers try. Creggs were forced into a number of re-shuffles due to injury and the team lost its shape after half time, but in fairness to Buccaneers their second half showing bore no resemblance to their opening 40 minutes and they battled manfully in a lost cause right to the final whistle.

Creggs suffered a sickening last minute loss to Dunmore earlier in the league so irrespective of Ballinasloe this game will have added bite as Creggs seek to avenge their earlier home defeat.

Creggs : B Egan, S Quinn, B Kilcommons, T Callaghan, P Lohan, N Flynn, E Gavin, L Mannion, P Corcoran, S O’Higgins, R Cassidy, A Glennon, T Nee, K Ryan, K Brandon.

Reserves : C Duignan, M Brandon, D Hoare, M Tiley.

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.
