Seniors claim narrow win over Naas

Leinster Senior League – Old Wesley 28 Naas 26

In an entertaining encounter that in the end saw the sides separated by just a conversion Old Wesley Seniors claimed an away victory over Naas.  Twice Wesley took a two score lead and twice Naas fought back.

New recruit Steve McGivern opened the scoreing with a try mid way through the first half, and virtually from the kick off Conor Barry finished off a well handled move.  Josh Miller converted both for a 14 nil lead. But the hosts fought back with 2 tries of their own leaving the score 14 – 12 at half time.

A third try by Naas saw them take a 5 point lead.  Paul Derham ploughed over after some strong forward play to reclaim the lead 21-19 before Josh Miller crossed unopposed after some neat back play.  Both tries were again converted.  Naas again fought back with a converted try making it a 2 point game.  But Wesley held on to claim the win.
