A great turnout to the Fethard Community Field last Sunday to witness huge groups from all around the area turn out to play rugby from U7s right up to U18s.
The U7s turned out in force for their first inter-club challenge. The squad saw Gavin Neville work well with Adam Ruttle, Sean Fitzgerald, Joseph Fitzgerald, Charlie Walsh, Bill Smyth, Lee Delaney, Troy Delaney, Codi Grogan, Sam Austin, Jack Stokes, Joseph Gayle, Sam Wyse and Noah O’Flynn.
Our U8s played a lively Galbally team and performed well for their first game of the season. They stepped up to the mark well with tries from Oscar Staunton Croke. We had great tackling and robbing of ball from Padraig Duggan. A few tries from fearsome tackler Andrew Wall and fine tackles and rucking-over from Oisín Ryan and Brian Cormac Hayes. Tries from Liam Kiely with fine runs and smart tackling and driving from Elle Luke – not forgetting the continuous tackling from Finn Maddigan. Well done boys and girls. Keep it up.
U9s squad are back training well and have a lovely squad and enjoyed their inter-club challenge and all performed well together. The squad last Sunday was Louis Ryan, Tom Smyth, Anna Quigley, Tomas Ryan, Jack Quinlan, David McCormack, Michael Blake, Mark Neville, Joseph Flynn, Clodagh Foley, William Cleere, Robbie Noonan and Daithi Hogan
Next game for the Minis (U7 up to U12) at home Sunday, October 13, to Thurles. Training every Friday from 6.45pm to 8pm. See you there.
