Our U11’s welcomed teams from Bruff RFC, Ennis RFC and UL Bohs yesterday to Clarisford Park.
Our Under 7/8’s yesterday hosted St Mary’s RFC in a mini blitz at Clarisford Park. Many thanks to all those who traveled and played.
BKRFC U12s visited Ennis RFC yesterday in very tricky conditions; wind, rain and 6 inches of mud underfoot!
No other teams came so we decided to play a full 15-a-side game and came out winners, 3 tries to two!
So proud of the boys in scoring some fantastic team tries, all 3 finished by Oisin Pepper, in what was an energy-sapping game with lots of scrums (from knocking on a very wet, muddy ball), lots of tackles, and slow- motion running through the mud (It was like running through quicksand!!). Well done boys, and thank you to their parents for bringing them & cheering them on from the sidelines!
Also a big thanks to Ennis RFC for being such fabulous hosts with a fine spread of sandwiches & cakes and lovely hot teas & coffees AND showers afterwards!
Finally, good luck to Rose and Sam in the laundryteam.com who get to wash the jerseys!
Team: Shane Geraghty, Oisin Pepper, Gordon Wood, Laurent Chateau, Ciarán Rodgers, Ben McCarthy, Ben Murnane, Cian Molloy, Aaron Leonard, Sean Crotty, Thomas O’Farrell, Cillian O’Connor, Conor Neill, Conal O’Murthuile, Éanna Coleman.
