Lansdowne 21 St Mary’s J2 14

The J2’s deservedly lost for the first time in 23 competitive game (April 2008) to Lansdowne in Ballycorus Road on Saturday. A well worked score by Barry Cahill and 9 points from the boot of James Dunne was all we had to show for an ill disciplined and lack lustre performance (penalty count 12 – 2 against in the second half). We also lost last years captain Rob Ryan to a dislocated elbow. As he would say, the Big C must have set in as we did not play with our usual aggression and flair. We have suffered a number of injuries to key men but we need to pick it up this weekend versus Clontarf.

p.s. C  = Complacency
