The last of the 2021 Development League Games saw the U14 Robins travel to the Banner Country to play west Clare side Kilrush RFC.
The rolling vistas and fresh air made for a fine start to a Sunday morning for players and supporters alike.
The team played well displaying some sound fundamentals and nice integrated team defence and attack scoring nine tries along the journey.
Every player had a good ‘cut’ during the match and the team spirit on display was very encouraging.
In rugby, team work to set up scoring opportunities are vital and central to the game, examples including a great direct run….beating the first tackle and then a fend and offload from Conor Forde, Dawid Stencil’s solid work on the wing, Brian Lane and his goose step and Oisin Connolly hitting the ruck were all thoroughly enjoyed by all.
We would all like to wish Lee Hogan, a stalworth of the team, a speedy recovery back from injury.
Training resumes Thursday 6.30pm in Annacotty
