Successful Connacht Blitz at Dubarry Park

Buccaneers hosted the Connacht U-11 blitz for clubs in the region last Saturday at Dubarry Park. Fifteen squads and 235 players enjoyed the occasion in the perfect conditions. This was for many clubs the culmination of the season’s training and playing and the high standard of rugby on view was testament to the work the coaches, mentors and players had put in since last September. Michael Dolan, Buccaneers Minis chairman, did a great job with help from his on and off field team of volunteers and is already looking forward to next year’s event.

BUCCS U-10’s successes at Connacht Blitz

Buccaneers U-10's travelled to Sligo on Saturday for their annual Connacht Blitz which was hosted by Sligo RFC in Strandhill. As the guys did their warm up routine they were treated to some spectacular views of both land and sea.


The panel was split into two even groups and the guys got down to business. Buccs Red played Corinthians, Corrib, Ballina & Creggs. The games were competitive with Buccs wining all four. Buccs Blue played Corinthians, Sligo, Galwegians and Loughrea again winning the four games. All the skills you expect to see at underage rugby were on display – bravery, teamwork and excellent ball handling. The boys had a great time and they are sure to look back with great pride in the years to come. Many thanks to all the parents who were able to travel and a big thank you to Sligo RFC for facilitating a great rugby blitz.


BUCCANEERS U-10’s in Corinthians Blitz

Buccaneers U-10’s visited Corinthians RFC last Saturday morning for what turned out to be a fantastic blitz. The morning was dry and the conditions were perfect for rugby. Buccs fielded three teams as did Corinthians, each group played each other and the games got underway at 10:30. The parents and spectators who braved the early morning fog were served up a treat as a total of nine mini rugby games were played – three at a time. This fixture has become very competitive over the last number of years - the blitz and level of rugby on show is a credit to both clubs.

Bravery, commitment and team spirit were on display as the guys used all their skills.

As always Corinthians were great hosts and the Buccs crew were very thankful for the refreshments provided.Bucc mini rugby continues, Saturdays mornings 11:30 at the Dubarry Park – for more info please contact Geraldine on 086 173 2711.
