Old Christians 37 vs Charleville 20

Charleville, 14:30PM

A great first result for our Junior team after a tough battle in Charleville. We opened the scoring on twenty minutes,  but within ten minutes, it was a two point game as the homeside scored an unconverted try.

Charleville now began to dominate and a try and a penalty saw them lead 7-15 as the halftime break beckoned. Just in time, Nibbler popped up with a try and the conversion saw us one point behind at the break, (14-15).

An early unconverted try by the home side, saw us trail by 20 points to 14, and things were not looking too good, but try, (converted), saw us hit the front by a point. A penalty soon followed and we we led 24 to 20 with seven minutes left.

We finished the stronger and a further two penalties and a last minute try, saw us take a four try bonus point on a final score of 37-20. A good start, but there are a lot of good teams in this divion now and we need to keep up the good work next week against Waterford in Rathcooney.

Thanks to Hotshot who delivered a match report to Christchurch NZ and we took it from there.
