U-15's match report 14th October 2018

Buccaneers U-15’s came out on top of their Connacht Development League match with Corrib by double scores 42-21 on Saturday. Buccs played some super rugby with Aaron Murray playing his best ever game and Tadhg McKiernan putting in a good stint. In an improving backs division half backs Frank McKiernan and Paidi O’Laughlin steered the ship with Sean McGrath running in the scores. This is an improving team beginning to reap the benefits of serious training.

U-14's matches w/e 14th October

Buccaneers U-14’s played NUI Galway in the Connacht Development League on Sunday and used the opportunity to play 33 players against an NUIG team that was too strong for development level. However there were some outstanding Buccs performances in the first half with debutant Michael Kilclyne magnificent and a returning Oisin Flynn and Caolin Duffy to the fore. In the second half James Clarke and Leon Cassidy stood up to an NUIG assault and came back to draw the half two tries apiece.

Buccaneers U-14’s “yellow” team had a big win against a game Caslebar outfit at home on Saturday in appalling conditions. Buccs started slowly as the game was spoilt by the rain but managed to score twice before the big Castlebar No.6 ran through some woeful attempts at tackles to score under the posts. Suitably stung Buccs reacted well to the half-time regrouping to forge ahead, scoring three times in the last five minutes to give the scoreline the flattering appearance of 38-14.
Con O’Hara was outstanding when the game was in the melting pot and he was ably supported by Conor Sheehan, Niall Tallon, Danny Reid and Fionn Lyons.

U-14’s two games at Galwegians

 

Both Buccs U-14 teams travelled to Glenina on Saturday to play old rivals Galwegians. The yellow team played first and though missing a few regulars played some superb rugby. Michael Kenny 2 Danny Reid 2 Diego and Sean Doyle were the try scorers with Euan Joyce converting 4.Galwegians scored late try but this was a good all round performance by this developing young squad with defence holding the key.
The black team only scored a single try but, with several debutants, nevertheless put in a promising performance. Patrick Egan, Caolin Duffy and Than were outstanding but tackling was always an issue. Next week this team plays NUIG in a league fixture in Athlone.
