Inal re­hearsal

Fingal Independent - - SPORT -

Ash­bourne would want to for­get as they con­ceded 26 unan­swered points and pro­duced a very dis­ap­point­ing dis­play. It means there is much work to be done be­fore these sides meet again in three weeks’ time in the All-ire­land Ju­nior Cup Fi­nal in Eden­derry, with Ash­bourne de­fend­ing their ti­tle, but the ca­pa­bil­ity is there.

The 2nd XV went down 21-8 but are one point clear of En­nis­cor­thy in their league go­ing into next week­end’s der­bies against Dun­dalk. In terms of the first team, Ash­bournecould find them­selves in the rel­e­ga­tion play-off po­si­tion should they lose and that doesn’t bear think­ing about for a team who were cham­pi­ons less than a year ago. ASH­BOURNE: Pa­trick Murtagh; An­drew Gib­son, Colm Craigie, Mark Rooney, Matt Con­nolly; Donal Crotty, Shane Bass; Frank Kee­gan, Danny Nor­ton, Mark Be­han; Sean Kent, Ciaran Roche; Conor Hur­ley, Justin Whit­taker, Jake Wall. Re­place­ments: Bren­dan Mee­han, Alan Wall, Adam Car­berry, Gavin Kennedy, Der­mot Col­reavy.
