published:Oct  30

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.
