Underage Rugby Report Sep 29th to Oct 6th
Ballincollig Minis U8 to U12 welcomed our near neighbours Muskerry to Tanner Park and a great series of exciting and competetive games were played out between the two clubs.
Muskerry then joined us in the clubhouse for food and refreshments. A big thank you to all the parents who brought sandwiches, cakes, sweets and sausages to the hall on the morning. It was a fantastic response from everyone and was very much appreciated by hungry players, coaches & parents.
Ballincollig U13s played their first game of the season against a very strong Christians side at Tanner Park on Saturday. Ballincollig started well but with the sheer size and power of Christians it was only a matter of time before they wore Ballincollig down. It is a big learning curve and challenge for the U13s this season but a challenge we are sure they will rise too and take head on.
Well done lads on your first outing on a full size pitch
Ballincollig 22 Muskery 19
A tough game was expected as we played an away challenge match against Muskerry, and that’s exactly what we got. We started poorly and roughly 15 minutes into the game Ballincollig were 19-nil behind, due to poor tackling and not being competitive at the breakdown. We rallied well and our hard work paid off with a well worked try, our tails were up going into the last quarter of the match. Our forwards worked very hard at both set pieces and in the loose. Our backs ran straight and fast, put the ball through the hands smoothly, which resulted in a fantastic but close win 19-22. A lot more hard work to be done before the League starts.
Well done lads!
