Youth Rugby

13

U18’s: Creggs U18’s who were recently crowned Connacht League champions were beaten by Ballina RFC in the semi final of the Cup last Wednesday week. The lads had played Galwegians in the Quarter final on the Sunday evening in Galway and having less than 3 days turnaround proved too much for the lads who have a had a great season.

Creggs had been in front at half time by 13-10 from 2 penalties from Shane Purcell and a try and conversion from Ronan Dowd however the second half you could visibly see the energy levels drain from the lads and a late try from Ballina sealed the victory by 20-13.

Thanks to the big group of lads we got together this year and with a lot of the lads underage again next year hopefully we can continue to develop and the future looks bright with a talented group of youth players on show all season.

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.
