OLD BELVEDERE 11 BUCCANEERS 10

published:Dec  10

OLD BELVEDERE and Buccaneers swopped places in the Division 1B table for the second successive week when the Dubliners eked out an 11-10 All-Ireland League victory at wet and windy Anglesea Road on Saturday. In a finely balanced contest between two evenly matched outfits, the homesters were mightily relieved when Luke Carty’s drop goal attempt, with the final kick of the match from over 30 metres, was fractionally off-target.

ST. MARY’S COLLEGE 34 BUCCANEERS 32

published:Nov  28

ST MARY’S COLLEGE earned a vital victory when defeating Buccaneers 34-32 in their All-Ireland League Division 1B clash at Templeville Road on Saturday. This meeting of the two clubs relegated from the top flight last season had a “must win” feeling about it even at this early stage of the current campaign. St. Mary’s were the more cohesive unit and merited their narrow bonus point win. On a firm sod, the endeavours and high scoring by both sides masks a scrappy enough affair.

The Athlone side had seven changes in personnel as well as a number of positional switches for this encounter including the return of Rory Grenham, who had been injured in the opening game of the season at Ballina.

BUCCANEERS 27 DUBLIN UNIVERSITY 22 (U-20's)

The home team made four changes from the previous week with Brian McDonnell making his first start for the club in the back row and Goncalo Catarino returning from injury. Liam Winnett was welcomed back following his exertions in Ireland U-20’s camp the previous week.

BALLYNAHINCH 42 BUCCANEERS 31

published:Oct  30

BALLYNAHINCH and Buccaneers served up a feast of scores in their All-Ireland League Division 1B encounter played at Ballymacarn Park on Saturday when the homesters came out on top by 42-31. The elevated ground was in top class nick but a sunny afternoon following pre-match hailstones was bracingly cold. In a fluctuating contest, the exchanges were fairly even for the opening quarter but, bizarrely, Buccs then suffered a triple setback on the half-hour mark when they lost three forwards to injury. Ballynahinch took control in the third quarter to build up a 42-10 lead before the Pirates late rally salvaged a try-scoring bonus point.

Blistering starts to both halves stunned the previously undefeated visitors and Buccs were full value for their emphatic bonus point Division 1B victory in Athlone on Saturday.
