Busy week­end for Wick­low mi­nis

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

WICK­LOW RFC’S mi­nis had their first full blitz of the new season on Sun­day morn­ing, Oc­to­ber 6.

Matches took place for all age grades with teams in ac­tion against Gorey RFC and Rath­drum RFC.

Un­der 10s and 11s hosted their coun­ter­parts at home in Ash­town Lane while the U-7s, 8s, 9s and 12s trav­elled south to play in Gorey.

Sun­day morn­ing dawned bright much to the re­lief of play­ers and spec­ta­tors alike fol­low­ing days of rain.

The sun­shine brought out the best in the play­ers on the field with some sparkling rugby be­ing played at all lev­els.

The U-10s took on Gorey in Wick­low with both clubs field­ing two teams.

The play­ers had two very com­pet­i­tive matches in great con­di­tions for fast run­ning rugby. Next week­end they travel to De La Salle Palmer­ston to play in the Le­in­ster Aviva Blitz. The U-12 girls will also take part in this blitz.

The U-12 boys per­formed re­ally well in their matches against Gorey. Wick­low fielded two teams against two big, phys­i­cal Gorey sides and en­joyed two great games each. This was their first time to try out the new for­mat in which they play the full width of the pitch and they have come away with a firm foun­da­tion for the season ahead.

It’s back to train­ing for most teams this Sun­day at 10am in Ash­town Lane.
