SENIOR CUP SEMI-FINAL IN DUBARRY PARK THIS THURSDAY NIGHT

published:Oct  21

BUCCANEERS square up to Corinthians in the semi-final of the Connacht Senior Cup at Dubarry Park on this Thursday night with the floodlit action kicking off at 8 p.m. The teams have already played under floodlights in Athlone this season when Buccs prevailed 38-28 in their Connacht Senior League meeting. The Pirates have also come out on top in two recent Senior Cup finals, 16-14 two seasons ago when Kieran Joyce’s final kick of the game penalty proved the match-winner, and 17-10 the previous season. On that evidence, Thursday’s duel is likely to be tight and keenly contested.

BUCCS FIRST MEETING WITH RAINEY OLD BOYS

published:Oct  07

BUCCANEERS head north for a first ever meeting with Rainey Old Boys in the second round of the Energia All-Ireland League on Saturday. This Division 2A game kicks off at 2.30 p.m. in Magherafelt, just west of Lough Neagh in Co. Derry. Incidentally it seems absolutely daft to this scribe that the IRFU have club fixtures listed for a day when Ireland are in action at the Rugby World Cup! Most travelling teams will be unable to watch the RWC and it will surely militate against supporters going to away games.
