Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

WICK­LOW RFC Un­der-15s made the jour­ney to Car­low on Fri­day night to play in the South East League.

Con­di­tions were damp and blus­tery, not good for play­ing rugby but Wick­low got stuck in from the start and put Car­low un­der pres­sure.

This was a game for for­wards to carry the ball and Wick­low went about press­ing for the first score and after good work from the pack they opened the Car­low de­fence and al­lowed Sean O’Meara to run in a fine try. Tom Hodgkin­son stepped up and con­verted and Wick­low had the start they wanted.

Play­ers were find­ing it hard to hold on to the ball but Wick­low were cop­ing bet­ter than their op­po­nents and again scored an­other good try.

This time Jor­dan Twomey pow­ered over to touch down and again Tom Hodgkin­son con­verted.

Wick­low were cruis­ing now and had all the play but Car­low some­how in­ter­cepted the ball and caught the Wick­low de­fence flat-footed and ran in a try of their own.

With just a few min­utes left in the half Wick­low went on the at­tack after some hard work at the break­down the ball was fizzed out to Scott Fitz­patrick and he jinked his way through the Car­low de­fence and scored a crack­ing try.

Again Tom Hodgkin­son con­verted added the ex­tra points from the boot. The score at half-time was 22 -7 in Wick­low’s favour.

The se­cond half got un­der way and Wick­low went straight on the at­tack and were quickly on the score­board again when Liam Ni­chol­son drove through the Car­low de­fence and touched down with an ex­cel­lent try.

Tom Hodgkin­son con­verted again and Wick­low were look­ing good.

Wick­low now made changes and again put Car­low un­der pres­sure and when the ball found its way to the hands of Jake Law he left the de­fence in his wake to score an­other try for Wick­low.

Car­low soon after added a try against the run of play to keep their hopes up but quickly Wick­low re­sponded.

This time Tom Hodgkin­son went on a mazy run and touched down him­self which he then con­verted.

With time run­ning out Wick­low at­tacked again and broke through the Car­low de­fence and Ivan Mackey was on hand to fin­ish off an­other ex­cel­lent try. Tom Hodgkin­son again was deadly ac­cu­rate with the kick­ing tee.

With sec­onds re­main­ing in the last play of the game Car­low added a con­so­la­tion try and con­ver­sion to leave the score at full time 47-17 to Wick­low. This was the sixth straight vic­tory for Wick­low un­der-15s this sea­son.
