Wick­low young­sters in fly­ing form last week­end

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

WICK­LOW RFC’s minis had an­other busy week­end as a num­ber of the squads played in fix­tures both home and away.

On Sun­day morn­ing the un­der--9s trav­elled to St Brigid’s Park in Cabin­teely and the un­der-11s pro­ceeded fur­ther north to take on Clon­tarf.

Mean­while, the un­der-12s wel­comed Terenure to their home ground at Ash­town Lane. The un­der--12 girls took part in a blitz in Grey­stones on Satur­day.

In St Brigid’s Park the un­der-9s took on teams from St Brigid’s, Stil­lor­gan and Wan­der­ers RFC.

Wick­low fielded two teams who each had three matches against their Dublin coun­ter­parts.

In­spired by Ire­land’s dis­play against the All Blacks the day be­fore, the Wick­low lads put on their best per­for­mance of the sea­son with bril­liant tack­ling the key to the day.

The Dublin teams moved the ball re­ally well to give a large crowd of sup­port­ers plenty to cheer about. Ar­range­ments are in place for a re­turn fix­ture in Wick­low in the new year.

Wick­low’s un­der-11s trav­elled to Clon­tarf for an early morn­ing fix­ture on Sun­day.

Two teams took to the field and, de­spite sev­eral ab­sences from the squad, the Wick­low lads ac­quit­ted them­selves ex­cel­lently.

The boys were in top form and re­ally took the game to their op­po­nents ruck­ing and tack­ling with enor­mous pas­sion.

It was a great morn­ing for heads up rugby with the lads seiz­ing ev­ery op­por­tu­nity pre­sented to them.

Terenure RFC’s un­der-12s vis­ited Ash­town Lane on Sun­day morn­ing with a big squad com­pris­ing four teams. Each Wick­low team played four 10 minute matches against the Terenure boys. Play­ing in bright sun­shine, the con­di­tions made for a lot of run­ning rugby. The Wick­low teams de­fended res­o­lutely and made more and more in­roads as the morn­ing wore on. The games were all played in good spir­its and the lads look for­ward to the re­turn fix­ture in the new year.
