Senior Rugby - McMullen Cup Semi-Final

Wexford C.B.S. ...5  Naas C.B.S. ...27
Carlow was the venue for this Semi-Final and while Wexford 'were up for it', it never happened. A combination of a few things led to our downfall, but we haven't become a bad team after one performance.This was our first loss of the season and we will learn from it. Ball possession was crucial and retention of the ball when he had it was just not good enough. T CUP, was the buzz phrase of Clive Woodward, Think Clearly Under Pressure. We didn't and therefore made Naas look good, they capitalised on our mistakes amd it cost us dearly. Best on the day for us were Collie Joyce-Ahearne , who scored our try, David Kavanagh, who is having a fine season at No.7, Gavin Byrne at No.6, Conor Fenlon at No.9 and Liam Barry at No.15.
However, we do have the Development Final to come in the new year against Ratoath C.C. and also we have qualified for the Vinnie Murray Cup. So we will have competed at three different levels this season, a remarkable achievement indeed. Our name will be called out of the pot when the draw is made in the Aviva Stadium on Monday evening. In reality we are only four games away from the Top Table of schools rugby in Leinster.
