 Under 16 boys friendly

On Saturday last we made the short trip to Tipperary town to take on Clanwilliam in a friendly game. Conditions were perfect and this allowed for a very open game with no restrictions on style of play. Clan put us under pressure from the kick off and held us within our half for the first ten minutes. After a lineout win in our own 22 the forwards set up a maul to control the play and a superb clearing kick resulted in play being taken up to the halfway line. We turned over this lineout and several phases of controlled heavy carrying later we crashed over for the opening try. From this point on we remained in full control of the game, 2 further tries seen us go in to the halftime break 17-05 up. The 2nd half continued in the same vein with us playing some very controlled rugby at a high tempo which resulted in a further 3 tries and a penalty. Our set pieces were dominant, work rate very high and were very clinical whenever we got within their 22. The final score in this very pleasing performance was 37-15.

Team from: Carlos O’Grady, Liam O’Donnell, Dan Turley, Eoin Lynch, Darragh Casey, Cian O’Donnell, Lorcan Murray, Gearoid Desmond, Jayden Lynch, Aidan O’Mahony, Sean Gorry, Eoghan Kelly, Jack Kelly, Jack Kearney, James Kennedy, Will Murphy, Ben Cooke.
