Junior rugby update

On Sunday the Seconds lost narrowly to Terenure in the J1 League. They scored two tries but missed a couple of kicking opportunities near the finish, losing 17-18. This was only their first loss of the season. On Saturday the J4s beat Coolmine 8 nil in a scrappy match and are now leaders of their league by 2 points over Guinness. Then on Tuesday the J2/J3s delivered their best result of the season against Old Belvedere at Anglesea Rd. On a bitterly cold night and against a big opposition pack they won out 23-8 with tries by Shane Davy and Ian Masterson. Masterson also kicked two conversions and two penalties, with Brian Doherty dropping a goal.
