Buccs Lions Rugby tour 2013

published:Jun  20

The Buccs Lions Tour of Australia will commence on approx. June 20th 2013, with the first Test on 22nd of June in Brisbane followed by a three day sailing trip around the Whitsunday tropical Island. This will be followed by scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef, fly to Melbourne for the 2nd Test on the 29th of June. We then plan to ski in the Snowy mountains, before the 3rd Test in Sydney on July 6th and fly home asap (approx. 17 days in total) after that. If there are sufficient numbers we hope to play a match in Brisbane, a rough estimate of the cost would be €2,500 (excluding beer money) this is based on current prices and our previous experience on other tours. If you are interested in a good time then this is as good as it gets (ask anyone that has been on previous tours if you are in any doubt) Previous experience in having a good time is a mandatory requirement, (time wasters need not apply). A deposit of €500 by July 16th.

CARTY CAPPED BY IRELAND

published:Jun  17

JACK CARTY became the fifth Buccaneers player to be capped by Ireland U-20s this year when he came on as a replacement in their narrow 20-15 Junior World Cup pool defeat to England. He then started at outhalf for Ireland’s game against Italy in which teammate CONOR FINN also played on the wing. Despite Ireland enjoying a comprehensive victory, a late bonus try by South Africa in their win over England meant that the Springboks topped this pool to progress to the semi-finals. However, CARTY and FINN both came off the bench in Ireland’s magnificent 27-12 play-off victory over the ‘old enemy’, which was doubly gratifying for all the players and mentors as England had been the only team to overcome Ireland at U-20 this year. Ireland now take on France in the fifth/six place play-off and we wish the boys in green best of luck. Whatever the outcome of this final match, Ireland will have achieved their highest ever position in the Junior World Cup.
