Creggs Firsts travel to Ballinrobe in Connacht League
Connaught Junior League

With three rounds left to play Creggs stay top of the table but with a bonus point win last weekend, Castlebar RFC has narrowed that lead to just one point. However, Creggs has a game in hand. This Sunday, Creggs First travel to Ballinrobe RFC, who despite being in the bottom half of the table, the South-Mayo has games in hand and has taken a couple notable scalps this season. It will be a tough outing for the Creggs lads.

With two away games and one home fixture still to be played, there will be no complacency within this squad. The competitive break last weekend will also hopefully have serve them well in advance of the busy coming weeks.

In addition to the three remaining Connacht League matches over the next three consecutive weekends, Creggs will then play the Semi-Final of the Connacht Junior Cup away to Sligo RFC on March 11th. This team is also in the Final of the Curley Cup v Corinthians RFC on March 30th.

Training continues on Tuesday and Friday nights.

Creggs Second Team’s away Connacht League game v Oughterard became a victim of the bad weather last Sunday. That game will now be re-sheduled.

All 3 teams in action this weekend.
First up was U18s who played A training game Friday with Corrib. A very worthwhile exercise and many thanks to our hosts for making it such an enjoyable evening.
Saturday evening brought Creggs Rfc to Tuam where firstly u14s locked horns. Trys from Ailbhe Gannon,Juno Hayes,Doireann Clancy and Ceoladh Lydon were the topping on a fine team performance for this continually improving group. Strong performances too from Kyri Ruane,Louise Seoige,Sarah Smith and Heidi Watson.
Next up was the U16s. This was a cracker of a game where despite the best efforts of captain Hannah Clarke to drag her side into the game Creggs proved too strong on the day. Experienced players Beibhinn Gleeson,Keanah Irons and Charlotte O Grady continually offered themselves in both attack and defence but the powerful relentless ball carrying Creggs girls were deserving victors.

A great evenings Rugby tonight when Creggs Girls U14 and U16 travelled to play Tuam/Oughterard in Tuam in their first games of the season.

The U14's who had a lot of players playing their first ever game went down to a strong Tuam/Oughterard team but put in a great performance and then the U16"s Girls came out on top in a tough encounter against the same opposition.

Thanks to all that were available to travel tonight.
