MUSGRAVE PARK NOTE CHANGE, 14:30PM
Technical camera problems, mean no pictures unfortunately, as we beat Ballincollig 34 to 17 and secured a bonus point win.
On the 4 G pitch in Musgrave park, we started brightly, with a 2nd minute penalty and we dominated the next 15 minutes without adding to our score.
Then a period of prolonged Ballincollig pressure, saw them barge over from close in.
Dara Daly replied with a converted try and we once again led, 10 points to 7.
Minutes later, Rohan Kiely crossed after good work from Smythy and Nibbler.
The conversion meant we led 17 points to 7 at the break.
Within minutes of the re-start, we had pushed the score out to 22 to 7 and when Dara struck again, within minutes, we were 27 to 7 points ahead and it seemed done and dusted.
We have quite a young team however, and it showed as we allowed Ballincollig back into the game.
A series of poor decisions and moments of needless panic, saw Ballincollig claw the score back to 27 points to 17.
We had a couple of nervous moments, before Smythy’s try gave us a bit of breathing space and we safely saw out the game on double scores, 34 to 17.
A decent display, with a couple of players making their way back, we look forward to better things in the new year.
