BUCCANEERS have their first home match of the season when they square up to Galwegians in round two of the Connacht Senior League at Dubarry Park, Athlone, on Saturday; kick off 2.30 p.m. Like the Pirates, Wegians had many new faces in their squad that travelled to Sligo last weekend where they forged a bonus point 27-5 victory. Their pack, including seasoned campaigners Jarlath Naughton, Conor Muldoon, Brian MacLearn and Eoin Rooney, dominated throughout. This gave outhalf Ross Shaughnessy a decent platform to control the play with further impressive contributions from centre Jerome Harrimate and winger Paul Power.



Buccs will be hopeful of having some of their more experienced players available for this contest while Martin Staunton and Luke Satchwell will have benefited from last week’s outing as they, among others, have only just resumed training. Mark Dolan should be recovered from injury and it’s hoped that Ruairi Byrne and Billy Henshaw will return too for this key clash.
