NAAS 33 BUCCANEERS 19 in final league fixture

published:Apr  15

Despite fielding a very injury depleted squad Buccaneers put up a brave and adventurous showing when going down 33-19 to Naas at Forenaughts in their final All-Ireland League Division 1B fixture of the season on Saturday. The Cobras victory was not as straight-forward as anticipated for the hosts whose final move try flattered their winning margin somewhat. Nevertheless, Naas confirmed their Top Four play-off berth with this victory but Buccaneers can take considerable confidence and encouragement from their lively and committed display.

BUCCANEERS travel to Forenaughts on Saturday to complete their All-Ireland League fixtures against Naas, kick off 2.30 p.m. Naas are flying at the moment on the back of three big wins and could possibly clinch the Division 1B title by winning against the Pirates. They have moved nicely up to third place in the league table, just one point behind Old Wesley whom they defeated in their last home fixture. Sizeable away victories over Ballymena and Banbridge leaves the Co. Kildare club just four points adrift of leaders Ballynahinch so the Cobras have huge incentive should either of the clubs above them slip up. Meanwhile Buccaneers have little only pride to play for so the midlanders can expect an arduous 80 minutes on Saturday.

Buccs led for the majority of this Prince of Wales Hotel sponsored fixture but the northerners bonus point victory ensures they secured their 1B status.

Buccaneers U-20’s accounted for Greystones in a tense and difficult J P Fanagan Leinster U-20 Premier League 2 encounter at Dr. Hickey Park. The score line was the same as the previous game away to Dublin University, but this was a very different match to that impressive win versus the students. Pitch conditions were very poor and this allied to a strong wind ensured Buccaneers found it hard to impose their superior football skills on the contest. However, in a much-changed side due to injuries and unavailability of key players who featured for the AIL side the previous day, Buccaneers again showed their strength of character and depth of squad to grind out a 26-19 win and a try bonus point. Victory moves the Athlone side up another notch to third in the league table.

OLD WESLEY retained pole position in Division 1B of the All-Ireland League when they defeated Buccaneers 29-13 at Energia Park on Saturday. Benefiting from a settled squad on the artificial surface at Donnybrook and helped by a very early try, the Dubliners proved too slick and powerful for a considerably depleted Pirates crew who remain second from bottom.

A greatly depleted Buccaneers could not match the intensity and cohesion of Ballynahinch whose 43-24 victory at Dubarry Park moves them level on top of the All-Ireland League Division 1B leaderboard. Buccs had nine enforced changes from last week’s win at Malone while Hinch could call on a key spine of Ulster players for this ‘Glasson Country House Hotel & Golf Club’ sponsored fixture.

BUCCANEERS inflicted only the second home defeat of the season on Malone when the midlanders won their All-Ireland League Division 1B encounter 11-6 in difficult conditions at Gibson Park, Belfast, on Saturday. The Pirates enjoyed by far the greater territory and possession throughout and the Cregagh Red Sox were fortunate to pinch a losing bonus point that keeps them in second place. Meanwhile, on the back of a fourth win in their last five outings, Buccs were finally rewarded in making some overdue ground up the league table to seventh.

BUCCANEERS bounced back from last week’s last gasp loss in Armagh to record a bonus point 24-17 All-Ireland League Division 1B victory over St. Mary’s College at Dubarry Park on Saturday. Buccs warranted this vital win but made heavier work of it than necessary in front of Connacht Head Coach Andy Friend. However, following three wins in their last four matches, they now lie just a solitary point adrift of the Dubliners on the ever tightening league table.
