published:Mar  27

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.

MALONE 6 BUCCANEERS 11

published:Mar  04

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.

CONGRATS JACK CARTY

published:Feb  25

Congratulations to Jack Carty on winning his first Ireland Senior cap in the victory over Italy in Rome. An unexpectedly tight contest meant that Jack did not enter the fray until the 77th minute but he managed 6 minutes game time and got quite a number of touches in that period. Hopefully, it will be first of many caps for the Barrymore native who has worked diligently in improving all facets of his game from year to year. The hard work and consistent performances have finally reaped due reward for the Connacht fly-half. All at Buccaneers congratulate Jack and wish him well in the Ireland ranks.

BUCCS AWAY TO MALONE IN BELFAST

published:Feb  25

BUCCANEERS are away to second placed Malone in next Saturday’s All-Ireland League Division 1B fixture at Gibson Park, Belfast. Kick off is 2.30 p.m. ‘The Cregagh Red Sox’ will be smarting having been knocked off top spot following last Saturday’s narrow defeat at Naas so Buccs must prepare for a reaction. But the midlanders will have a point to prove too, having left the Belfast side off the hook at Dubarry Park earlier in the season. Then despite a superb 56 phase final move the Pirates did not reap due reward and lost by a solitary point.
