Buccaneers U-18.5’s had a convincing 30-8 win against Galwegians in the quarter-final of the Connacht Cup on Sunday in Dubarry Park. Two first half tries by Connacht U-18 scrumhalf Leo MacFarlane, both converted from difficult angles by outhalf Michael Byrne, plus a penalty by Byrne gave Buccs a 17-3 halftime lead. Buccs conceded an unconverted try ten minutes into the second half. But another Byrne penalty followed by two brilliant team tries, finished by Liam Doyle and Harry Balsiger, ensured the young Pirates advanced comfortably.
