Brunner’s U17 Rugby Team Give Spirited Display

St Paul's CBS U17 Rugby TeamThe second day out for the St. Paul’s u17 rugby team was in the home of Leinster Rugby on the main pitch in Donnybrook The team had trained the previous week with the Leinster Schools development coaches and it proved to be a great setting for the game.

On a cold winter’s day with some snowfall the lads put in a huge effort. Some great defensive tackles from John Aylmer, Bradley Skerritt and Alex Juncu kept the St Kevin’s CBS attack at bay for much of the first half. Ciaran Horan Christopher Ali and Josh Carey all had good spells of play carrying the ball at pace with real power and purpose. Some clever kicking from Kyle Fitzgerald almost led to the opening for St Paul’s but there was to be no joy.

There was a spirited start to the second half with Karl Ivory setting the tone with a thundering tackle. This was immediately followed up by strong carrying again from Kaeim Ali which gained the team some territory. However, in the end some great individual efforts from the St Kevin’s lads were the undoing of our team and they ran out winners scoring a total of 3 tries.

Well done to all the squad involved in the game and thanks to Mr O’Shea and Mr Delany for the organisation and to Deco for the transport
