U16 Munster Club Cup

Nenagh Ormond 0-8 Bruff

Nenagh Ormond Under 16s hosted Bruff RFC in Lisatunny on Sunday morning in a crucial play off match. The reward for the winner of this clash would be a place in the Munster Club Cup quarter final. The importance of the match was not lost on the players and, although nervous, both sides looked lively in their warm ups and were up for the challenge.

Bruff received the kick off and, playing with the wind in the first half, went straight on the attack. Nenagh weathered this first onslaught well and after that had the majority of the possession in the remainder of the first half. However, Bruff were well organised in defence and they pushed up fast, putting on the pressure and preventing Nenagh from getting the ball out wide. This meant that, despite having several opportunities, Nenagh just couldn’t get through the yellow wall to score.

With just minutes to go to half time Bruff gained possession just outside the Nenagh 10 metre line. They showed good patience, retaining the ball and eventually going over to leave the half time score at 0-5.

At the break Nenagh pinpointed what needed to change and for the opening minutes of the second half looked to have more energy. Again Bruff held firm and, although the Nenagh lads all gave 100% and did create chances, it just wasn’t to be their day. Nenagh stayed going till the end but with two minutes left Bruff put the result beyond doubt with a penalty in front of the posts which took their lead out to two scores.

Our U16s will now go into the Munster Development Cup where they play Waterford City in the quarter final.

Team: Adam Cleere, Luke Graham, Kieran Tinkler, James Finn, Liam Cooney, Adam Steed, Andrew Ferris, Jack Gleeson, Sean Fitzgerald, Paddy Ryan, Darragh Tucker, Josh Moloney, Tom Kennedy, John Brislane, Eoghan Tighe (c). Reps: Tom Lillis, Jack O’Flaherty, Arainn O’Sullivan, Joe Shanahan, Evan Rainsford, Cormac Kennedy, Sam Lloyd.
