The first ever touch league hosted by Old Wesley drew to a close on Saturday, 5 out of the 6 league teams participated along with visitors from Portugal, Agraria touch based in Coimbra. While the Lions came out on top of the league standings they were pipped in the cup final by the Celtics (both pictured)
The Old Wesley Wyverns took the bronze actually beating the overall winners on the day in the pool games, a fantastic achievement for a team with mixed touch experience, as the selection criteria excluded anyone not currently playing Rugby for the club. A good mix of lads from the 3s, 4s and 5s along with some seriously skilled ladies made for (Arguably and from a completely biased point of view) the team of the tournament.
Average Joes, UCD and Trinity came 4th, 5th and 6th respectively.
MVPs were Hazel Simmons, Conor Murphy, Stephen Troy and Emily Pollard.
Of course if my wallet is anything to go by the real winner of the night was the Bar take……
