U9 Taken on Balbriggan!

We had a great turn out of our U9 squad last Sunday morning with our first home game of the season against Balbriggan. Due to our opposition numbers we decided to play 3 ten minute halves , instead of two team games. Our game was 10 aside, allowing us to roll on and off our subs. Straight away we saw it was going to be a tough game , with Balbriggan scoring the first try. Our might boys persevered and dug deep, with some great tackling from...

The Legends – Wingers Part 2

The Legends – Wingers Part 2

  (1)   Nathan Swayne Another one of our famous Kiwi contingent, Nathan was an excitement machine who could play anywhere from Scrumhalf to Fullback, and an odd game at #7. He also took up the goal-kicking duties at one stage when required to too.. Unpredictable and exciting as he was known, a former player aptly put it ‘How are we supposed to know what he is doing when he doesn’t know’. Nathan was as much of a menace on the pitch...

Wingers Part 1 This Week

Wingers Part 1 This Week

(1)   Vinny Crean   Vinny, AKA ‘Vincenzo’ was one of the Real Deal old style Wingers but with a bit of a difference in standing over 6’2” tall.
