Colaiste Muire’s newly formed rugby team had their first outing this year. The U-17 squad took part in a blitz in Musgrave Park where they placed second. Shane O’flaherty lead the defensive effort with some huge hits. Tom Worrall at outhalf pulled the strings all day putting his backline into space while always presenting as a threat himself. Player of the Blitz was Captain Gearoid O’Donnovan who lead the way in attack and defence with an enormous tackle count and scoring 8 of the teams 14 tries on the day.
Other tries scorers on the day were Alex O’Rourke (2), Jake Doody, Cameron Taft, Josh Sheehan and Tom Worrall.
Big thanks to Cobh Pirates for lending the jerseys for the game!
