published:Jun  04

Five Buccaneers players have been named in two Ireland World Cup squads. Jack Carty, Robbie Henshaw and Finlay Bealham are included in Joe Schmidt’s extended squad ahead of the upcoming World Cup in Japan after the summer. Meanwhile, Niall Murray and Colm Reilly are in Argentina with the Ireland U-20 squad. Both players were members of the Six Nations grand slam winners. They kick off their campaign with what should be a cracker against England this Tuesday (kick off 7.30 p.m. Irish time). They then face Australia on Saturday (kick off 2.30 p.m. Irish time) and their final pool game is against Italy on the following Wednesday (kick off 2.30 p.m. Irish time).

BUCCANEERS 7 BALLINASLOE 3
Buccaneers and Ballinasloe played out a compelling and thrilling Connacht U-17 Cup final at Dubarry Park, Athlone, on Sunday with Buccs shading a fiercely contested decider by 7-3. Two very well matched sides gave it their all in this derby duel but the young Pirates inexorable commitment, particularly in their tackling, richly merited this victory in a battle that was in the balance right up to the final whistle of the 70 minutes.

BUCCANEERS 24 QUEEN’S UNIVERSITY 30

published:Apr  24

It’s relegation for the second successive season for Buccaneers following their 30-24 All-Ireland League play-off defeat to Queen’s University at warm and sunny Dubarry Park on Saturday. Buccs battled relentlessly to the bitter end but came up against a well-drilled and highly committed Belfast outfit who were that bit smarter on the day. Queens now progress to a playoff decider at Navan but it’s Division 2A for the midlanders next season.

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.

BUCCS AWAY TO NAAS IN FINAL LEAGUE FIXTURE

published:Apr  10

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.
