U18 League:

Creggs U18’s Travelled to Athlone on Monday for an U18 league game and came away with a good 41-10 victory over Buccaneers RFC. Tries from Mairtin Quinn (2) , Shane Purcell (2), Daire Byrne, Jason Hoare and amuray Duarte sealed an impressive victory against a very physical Buccaneers outfit. Creggs had to withstand a very effective pick and drive game from the Home side and only for such good defensive work from Adam Finnerty, Brian Maloney, David O Gorman and Ronan Cahill around the fringes the home side could easily have added further scores. Creggs were finding space out wide and used Daire Byrne and Jason hoare to great effect to punch holes in the defence and quickly recycle and moved the ball through the hands and took some very good scores this way. Training continues for the U18’s next Friday night at 8.30pm in Creggs,

Creggs U13’s will play Galwegians RFC in a league game next saturday in Creggs as 12pm. Training continues Friday night at 7pm.

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.

Thanks to all that were available to travel tonight.
