Creggs 39 Westport 10

Creggs enjoyed a comprehensive win over Westport last Friday night in the Green, Creggs scoring 6 tries in the process. Creggs began brightly seizing possession from the kick off with Tom Oates and Edward Clinton driving forward. The ball was moved by the backs to centre Kevin Gavin who cut through under the posts for a great try. Shane Dowd converted and a few minutes later added a penalty. Then a loose kick from Westport saw Shane Dowd collect the ball on halfway and sidestep through a number of defenders and then sprint through for a fine individual try which he converted. Creggs continued to pile on the pressure and a lineout throw from the ever improving Brian Coady found Edward Clinton and he was supported by Simon Spain and Dan Butt. The ball was quickly offloaded by Shane Dowd to Rory O’Brolachain and the centre crashed over for a converted try. The second half saw Creggs continue their domination and number 8 Matthew Brandon gathered at the tail of a lineout and scored near the posts. Edward Clinton and Shane Dowd completed the scoring with two more tries. Creggs continue training on Friday night at 7.30pm with another league game this coming weekend.

Panel: S. Spain, D. Butt, B. Coady, T. Oates, M. Kelly, E. Clinton, R. Collins, S. Dowd, R. O’Brolachain, K. Gavin, C. Gore, J. Brennan, M. Feeley, M. Farrell, T. McGuinness, S. Doorly, M. Butt, M. Brandon, R. O’Donoghue.

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.
