U12 Girls play at Thomond Park

Congratulations to our U12 Girls team who played in the Mini rugby half-time games during the Munster – Glasgow game at the weekend. On what was an emotionally charged day for the whole rugby community our girls turned in a stellar performance, running in 4 tries, putting on a showcase of excellent rugby skills.

Well done to all involved!

U12’s vs Ennis RFC





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 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.


U12’s at Bruff RFC

BKRFC U12s played some great rugby at Bruff RFC’s annual James Keating Memorial tournament.
They had some tough pool games, drawing 0-0 to St Senans, beating Clonmel 2-0, and narrowly losing to Old Crescent and Abbeyfeale by just one try. We thought we were going home but in 4th place we went through to the 4th place semi final. Here they came up against Newcastle West and ran out impressive winners, 3tries to nil! The boys were through to a final against Shannon!
A huge battle began where we saw some of the best tackles we have ever seen from our team. Sadly, one of the Shannon speedsters snuck through to score the only try of the match. Ballina Killaloe were closing in on the line in the dying seconds but unfortunately time ran out. A big thank you to all the boys and their parents for travelling to Bruff for the day on a Bank Holiday Monday! And thank you to Bruff RFC for inviting us along to a great day.

U12 Blitz at Estuary RFC

Ballina-Killaloe RFC U12’s travelled to Shanagolden, Co. Limerick to play teams from Estuary RFC, Young Munster & Thomond RFC.

After a slow start against Estuary and some tough, well-drilled opposition from Young Munster, the boys lifted their game against a big Thomond side to finish the morning with a win. Inspired by the All Blacks game the night before, we saw some great rucking, big tackles, lovely passing sequences and brilliant tries.

Squad: Alex Chateau, Laurent Chateau, Shane Geraghty, Ben McCarthy, Leifur O’Gorman, Gordon Wood, Ciaran Rodgers, Tom Farrell, Sean Crotty, Cillian O’Connor, Shane O’Connell, Conor Neill, Cathal Mullane.
Try Scorers: Shane Geraghty, Ben McCarthy, Ciaran Rodgers, Gordon Wood, Conor Neill, Cathal Mullane, Cillian O’Connor.
Big thanks to the boys and parents who travelled on such a big day in the Irish Rugby Calendar!
