U-17s Rugby Report 

Our U-17s Rugby Squad recently had a 2 match Blitz in Old Christians, winning both games comfortably.  Captain Gearoid O’Donnovan set the tempo early in the first game scoring 2 tries within 10 minutes.  The defence for both games was again fantastic, huge hits from Sean Brennan, Alex Finnegan, Alex O’Rourke and Shane O’Flaherty keeping the opposition at bay.  Brandon Joy pulled the strings at 10, reading the opposition defence well and putting himself and his backline of Ryan Abramson, Alex Finnegan and Gearoid O’Donnovan into space for multiple line breaks.  Dara Kelleher was ever vigilant on the wing, tracking every line break and touching down for 3 tries himself.   

Try Scorers on the day were; 
Dara Kelleher (3)
Gearoid O’Donnovan (2)
Cameron Taft 
Shane O’Flaherty
Brandon Joy
Alex Finnegan
Ryan Abramson

Again, a big thank you to @cobhpiratesrfc for the use of the jerseys and to Mr Mullins for assisting with the squad on the day.  

And lastly to all the players who trained and togged out for Colaiste Muire’s rugby squads this year,  It was a fantastic first season for the school and Mr Barry is a very proud coach of the 49 students that were involved in the panel this year.  We eagerly look forward to next season and the challenge that awaits.
