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.

U13’s Match vs Gort RFC

Our U13’s, who include a number of players from Scariff RFC, today traveled to the rugby grounds in Scariff where we hosted Gort RFC.
In an entertaining and committed game BK/Scariff RFC managed to withstand strong pressure from Gort to break away and score a number of good tries to go in 19-0 up at halftime. With the stiff wind in the backs in the 2nd half, Gort never gave up and managed 3 tries themselves, however strong carries by Noel McGrath, Evan Wood, Callum Byrne and Ruadhan Quinn throughout the game saw BK/Scariff RFC U13’s win out 47-17 in the end. Many thanks to all those who came along for an entertaining game

BKRFC U13 vs Young Munster

The U13’s made the expedition out to Derryknockane and Young Munster’s pitches. In a morning where many senior games were cancelled, heavy downpours and strong winds welcomed the players, a pitch inspection and a discussion among the coaches, the decision was made to go ahead with the game as the gale eased slightly.

Playing with the strong winds, Young Munster were quicker off the mark, getting 2 early tries, before BKRFC managed to find their own groove, and through a couple of direct runs, an attacking scrum inside the YM 22, BKRFC played a smart switch of play to the blindside to dot down for their opening try.
The conditions were trying at times but all players played their part. Both sides showed a willingness to spread the ball out wide despite the greasy ball.
BKRFC started the second half strong, crossing for a couple of tries, but Young Munster showed good skill and speed managing a number of scores themselves. BKRFC refused to let their heads go down and in one play after making a strong surge down the middle, BKRFC were held up short, YM won the ball and broke up field, but refusing to give up BKRFC chased back, managed to secure the ball again and in an excellent example of counter attacking, ran the ball back, used the width of the pitch and scored what was to be the final try of the game.

Many thanks to all the parents and players who made, and found, their way out to Derryknockane and well done to Young Munster on their win and for what was an excellent game in adverse conditions for all.
