Creggs Under-14’s have big win away in Connacht Cup

13

Connacht Under-14 Plate

Corrib RFC 11, Creggs RFC 20.

Creggs played Corrib away in the first round of the Connacht Plate on Wednesday night last in Headford. This was a very severe test for the Creggs outfit as they were up against a very physical Corrib outfit.

The home team went into a 5 – 0 lead early in the game but Creggs came back with a try to equalize just before half time. Corrib took the lead again with a penalty early in the second half but Creggs replied with another try.

This was a very hard fought game and Creggs scored two more tries to one further penalty from Corrib, leaving a well-deserved final score of Creggs 20, Corrib 11.

This was a fantastic team effort from Creggs having been behind on three separate occasions they never panicked and were deserving winners. The try scorers were Thomas King, Daniel Browne, Shane Maloney, and jack Donnelly

Creggs now go forward to meet Buccaneers in the Connacht Quarter Final in two weeks time.

Rugby is delighted to be opening up again soon and yesterday in Creggs RFC we had a unique presentation organised by Anthony Cahill from Cahill's Supervalu Castlerea.
Dr John Dillon from Castlerea proudly wore the green of Connacht back in the day and one of the his many achievements was to be part of a winning Connacht side against Ulster in Belfast in 1958.
When Connacht beat Ulster at Ravenhill in October 2018 there were two Roscommon players Denis Buckley and Jack Carty on the pitch that night, winning at Ravenhill for the first time since Dr John Dillon and his team mates some 60 years earlier thus joining a very elite group. Denis and Jack proudly presented Dr Dillon with a framed memento of his victory and a number 12 Connacht jersey as worn by Bundee Aki.
Owing to Covid 19 restrictions only a small number of people could attend including members of Dr Dillon's family. Creggs RFC was delighted to host the presentation and very appreciative of Anthony Cahill who organised the occasion and the beautiful framed memorabilia of the 1958 match.
