Senior Rugby - McMullen Cup

Wexford C.B.S....7 Wilson's Hospital....0
''Cheers guys, that was the toughest game we played all season, you know we have four Leinster players and an International'' Yes indeed you may well have Mr.Captain but Wexford won the game, and in doing so knocked out one of the pre competition favourites.
C.BS. got in some early hits and put down a marker, we would not roll over, even after a three hour trip to Mullingar. Wexford dominated the early exchanges and played deep in the opposing half for most of the first half. Having crossed the line on three occasions, Wexford could have been forgiven for believing that it was not going to be their day. However on 30 mins finally a score that could not be disallowed. Gavin Byrne was on hand to finish of some relentless bombardment of the try line. Eoin Roche kicked the conversion. 7-0.
Playing into the strong wind in the second half was going to be tough, but that's how the Bokerboys like it, tough.Our steely defence was not to be penetrated and it's rating has now gone up to Triple A status. ''Thou shalt not pass''.It was that simple. Our tackling was hard, solid and at times frightening in its ferocity.
This was a thrilling cup game and one the squad will remember for a long time.
Next week it is East Glendalough in the Q-Final of this competition. We also have Ratoath CS in the Final of the Development Cup to come also.
