Creggs Rugby play Ballinrobe RFC in the Heineken Connacht Junior Cup at 2.30pm on next Sunday at the Green.
Both teams have a proud tradition in the Connacht Junior Cup. Ballinrobe actually being the last Mayo team to win it back in 1991.
They defeated Tuam 15-11 last Sunday,and will travel to Creggs backed by players of the calibre of former Connacht underage No.8, Jack Winters, outstanding full-back and captain Peter Cosgrove, Mark Nalty and Peter Costello.
Tom Fleming has been in superb form in the Creggs front-row, with Peter Lohan, Bernard Kilcommons and Kevin Brandon also delivering big performances in recent games.
Cosgrove will line up opposite David Brandon, who has been in outstanding form, while Ger Heneghan has been a major contributor on the scoreboard and in general play.
Captain Tom Callaghan has led the back line admirably all season, but Creggs mustn’t underestimate this powerful Ballinrobe team.
Coaches Kevin ORourke and Liam Callaghan deserve great credit for their efforts in turning the season around,after a difficult start and a good run in the Cup would be most beneficial for Creggs.
