Thurles Youth Rugby
Thurles u18’s had no match this week but training at usual times this week. Thurles will play Galbally next Sunday the 10th of November in their final pool game of the league. A win in this is vital to ensure progression to the play offs.
There was no U16 game this week but Thurles U15’ s played Clanwilliam in their second league match on Sunday last. Thurles were in control from the start, and the game was played in good spirit with some tough but fair exchanges.
Thurles started the better opening the scoring with two tries. Thurles were strong and disciplined defensively stopping Clanwilliam at source and managing to clear to clear their lines when Clanwilliam knocked on just short of the try line. There was instances of good interplay between backs and forwards. A defensive lapse whilst Thurles were pressing home an attack coughed up possession short of the Clanwilliam line and the Clan number 8 ran the length of the field to score. However Thurles finished the game the strongly with long periods of play in the Clan half but couldn’t add to their tally. The Final score Thurles 24 Clanwilliam 14.
