Junior Rugby Match

18 November 2021

Hard luck to Naas CBS Junior Rugby Team who were narrowly defeated by St. Andrews yesterday.

Match Report from Ms. Joyce:

It was an excellent game. Naas CBS had a tough start, spending the first ten minutes in their own 22 and conceding two tries (one converted). Then Naas found their rhythm. The tide turned with Harry Dunne, very smart in defence, stealing a ball and getting away a super, relieving kick. From there things started to click, with Naas winning much of the physical battles. Jack Osborne kicked a penalty (24 minutes) Charlie Croke went over for a try (28minutes) and Jack Osborne converted it. Half time score: Naas CBS 10 – St. Andrews 12.

Naas started well in the second half, piling on the pressure which resulted in a sin bin for St. Andrews. Harry Dunne went over for a try after excellent interplay between backs and forwards and Jack Osborne converted. Three minutes from the end, St. Andrews went over for a try and converted. Naas fought to the end but the clock ran out and they were narrowly defeated on a scoreline of 19 to 17. It was a super Naas CBS performance.
