Played in beautiful conditions, and after giving away an early 3 points to a penalty for Corinthians, Creggs played some super rugby with Conor McNulty, Adam Donnelly and Ronan Lambe very prominent. Out wide Ben Finnerty and Andrew Naughton were causing problems for the home defence. Mark Purcell went in for two tries one of which he converted to give Creggs a 12-3 advantage after 15 minutes.

The home side had a period of dominance for 10 minutes before the break and for the first few minutes of the second half where they scored 13 unanswered points to lead 18-12 but Creggs soon took control of the game again and big carries from Kian Moran on numerous occasions, and from Adam Donnelly and Darragh Kiernan as well as the Creggs backs moved the call well through Cian Glennon, David Gaquin, Shane Connaughton and Aaron Lyons. It all paid dividends with four second half tries from Adam Donnelly, Sean Trundle, Ethan Glennon and Lorcan Maher scoring plus two conversions from Mark Purcell. It gave Creggs a 36-18 lead into the closing stages.

Corinthians kept plugging away and when a kick was fumbled by the Creggs defence, Corinthians got there quickest and ran in for a try with the last play to leave the final score Creggs 36 – Corinthians 23.

Creggs Under-16’s are away to Sligo RFC next weekend.

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.
