BUCCS TAKE ON UCD AT BELFIELD

published:Jan  22

The stop-start Ulster Bank League Division 1A resumes on Saturday when Buccaneers head to the capital to tackle University College Dublin at Belfield where the action gets under way at 2.30 p.m. Buccs first AIL win this season came at home to the Students on a 19-13 margin when a passionate and sustained effort gained due reward for the Pirates. They will have to be equally committed and disciplined if they are to stretch their winning sequence against UCD to four victories in a row, the Athlone side having completed a double over College in 1B five seasons ago when the clubs were last in the same division.

published:Jan  17

BUCCANEERS SECONDS made a tame exit from the Connacht Junior Cup when going down 51-17 to Castlebar at wet and windy Cloondeash on Sunday. Buccs made seven changes from their most recent outing which was over a month ago and, consequently, their play was disjointed and disorganised. The hosts, meanwhile, had a sturdy pack that they made good use of as well as utilising their rolling substitutions to telling effect.

published:Jan  08

BUCCANEERS SECONDS face a tricky assignment when they head to Castlebar on Sunday for a Connacht Junior Cup joust with the Mayo club. The Pirates will need to be at their focussed and committed best when the action kicks off in Cloondeash at 2 p.m. Castlebar lie third in Division 1B but, like this Buccs side, have a tendency for inconsistency. It’s a clash that could go either way and that old sporting term “who wants it most” could be the decisive ingredient.

published:Jan  02

The Buccaneers President’s XV denied Exiles making it three in-a-row successes when they proved convincing 29-12 victors in the traditional St. Stephen’s Day fixture at Dubarry Park, Athlone. Back-boned by a quartet of Byrnes, the President’s men took the game to the holders from the off. Played in cold but otherwise ideal conditions, the winners were the better outfit for the majority of what was a lively and open affair. Among the interested spectators were South African duo Dylan Rogers and Gavin Schoeman who both played with Buccaneers. Rogers is now a Hong Kong international while Schoeman is one of Buccs most respected forwards.
