A damp Saturday for a tough game of rugby.
We hosted the boys from Bruff last Saturday we were already down a few players with injury and illness. Bruff got on the score sheet first with an unconverted try. We were awarded a penalty that was within Rob’s range and he converted it. Followed by another penalty which Rob also converted bringing the score to 6 – 5. The next score was also a penalty again expertly kicked by Rob putting us well ahead 9 Old Christians 5 to Bruff. Unfortunately it was the last time we were ahead. The final score of the half was by Bruff this one a converted try. The first half closed with 2 players off with injuries Connor Drummy came off Fareed came on in his place and Dave moved to 8. Josh came off just before half time causing a bit of a rejig of the back line Leo came on at 9, Adam moved to 10, Rob moved to 12. The half time score was Old Christians 9 – 12 Bruff.
Start of the second half seen the Bruff lads score 2 more tries both unconverted, bringing the score to 9 Old Christians and Bruff to 22. We got our only score of the second half another converted penalty bringing Robs tally to 12 points. Despite some good passages of play we were not able to convert any of it into a score. The second half was rounded out by another try by Bruff this one converted bringing their tally to 5 tries 2 of them converted. The full time score was Old Christians 12 – 29 Bruff. We hope Connor is back fighting fit soon and Josh recovers quickly. On the good news front Oscar has returned to training and should hopefully be back playing in no time.
Our next game is this Friday at 8 pm against Douglas/Carrigaline.
