U14 Match vs St Senan’s RFC

U14 Squad

Well done to our U14 Newport RFC OfficialScariff R.F.C.Ballina-Killaloe RFC combined XV who defeated St Senan’s RFC in their North Munster Conference league match at Clarisford Park, Killaloe earlier today.
This match was rescheduled from St. Senan’s RFC pitch as their pitch was unplayable. Many thanks to St Senan’s for traveling on a weekend a lot of games were called off.
While conditions in part could have been called ‘heavy’ both teams played out an excellent game of rugby with both sides showing great handling skills with the wet ball. The game was a close call until the final 15 minutes, when a couple of injuries reduced St Senan’s numbers and resolve with Newport/Scariff/BK RFC pulling through with a brace of converted tries.
Final score Newport/Scariff/BK RFC 57 St Senan’s RFC 12.

Newport/Scariff/BK RFC U14 XV are now 3 wins from 3 in the League with Richmond RFC and Thomond RFC to visit the next couple of weeks

U14’s vs Old Crescent RFC

Congratulations to our combined Newport-Ballina-Killaloe RFC XV who traveled to Old Crescent RFC this morning for their U14 Conference match. In an engaging, see-saw contest of a match, OC were the first off the mark with a well taken try, converted, to lead 7-0 after 5 minutes. Not ones to hang their heads, our boys regrouped and playing to suit the heavy and wet conditions, they held on the ball through a series of pick and go’s, before man of the match Evan Wood burst through for BK RFC’s first try.
Another one was soon added on by Joe McGrath on the left wing, using his pace to get around the cover after great work by the forwards to create the overlap. BK RFC now led 10-7
OC however didn’t give up, and conjured a try themselves after some good work out wide. OC now led 12-10.
Once again BKRFC knuckled down and Evan Wood scored a lovely individual trademark try after breaking from a scrum on his own 10 metre line, brushing off the OC cover to score under the posts, BKRFC led 17-12 at half-time.
OC were not giving up just yet and after a series of probing pushes they were rewarded with a try, unconverted, to level up the scores, 17-17. The game now ebbed and flowed with both sides creating half breaks and chances, eventually, after a series of scrums and a couple of penalties, as OC strayed offside, MOM, Evan Wood crashed over for his 3rd try. James Frahill converted to give BK RFC a 24-17 lead. Never say die was the attitude of OC and they came back again to eventually score after a series of rucks, 22-24 to BKRFC with the game entering the final minutes. A long kick off saw OC counter but they lost possession out wide, BKRFC then managed a series of plays just inside the OC half, retaining possession and holding OC at bay. Final score 24-22 to Newport-BK RFC.
Well done to all the players from both teams in what was a great contest in trying conditions. Many thanks to Old Crescent RFC for hosting the boys

U18 Girls vs Kanturk RFC

Ballina-Killaloe U18 Girls traveled to Kanturk RFC on Saturday 3rd December for a friendly challenge match.
Both teams are in development stage and were evenly matched. BK RFC started off strongly, gaining a foothold in the Kanturk half of the pitch, eventually the pressure proved too strong for Kanturk with BK RFC managing two unconverted tries to lead 10-0.  Kanturk did not give up, and managed to work their way up the pitch and with a searing line break, scored under posts with a converted try.  Not to be outdone, BKRFC struck back immediately to leave the half-time score 15-7 to BKRFC.
The second half was as fiercely contested as the first. BKRFC put the Kanturk line under pressure on a couple of occasions, but good defence saw Kanturk hold off the siege and then manage a try of their own after some good work out wide, closing the gap to 15-12 as the match entered the final quarter.  Again BK RFC put together some good phases and threatened the Kanturk line, again, Kanturk repelled the pressure and as the game entered the final minutes Kanturk had possession in the BK RFC half of the pitch, however a good turnover and some quick hands with the ball going out wide to the left wing, Maeve óg O’Leary for BK RFC, made a strong run and eventually handed off a number of Kanturk tacklers to score in the far corner, with the final score ending , Kanturk RFC 12, BK RFC 20.
BK RFC would like to thank Kanturk RFC for hosting the match and they look forward to facilitating a return fixture in the New Year
