On a muddy and cold Saturday St Mary’s J4B took on Unidare in St Mary’s, this match was meant to be played in Unidare’s grounds but the ground was deemed unplayable so Mary’s got the fixture moved to home. What started as a very intense and physical encounter Mary’s start straight out of the blocks, hard hits and plenty of communication was key here today for St Mary’s. The first half was briefly held up with an injury to a Unidare player who received a small laceration below the eye, Mary’s were chasing the game at this stage as Unidare had scored 3 tries. With 10 minutes from the end of the first half Mary’s came back and managed to score two more tries. The second half start and after some harsh words from Adrian Malone Mary’s came out even stronger and more determined to walk away with 4 pts today. Mary’s forwards threw their bodies onthe line and constantly dominated the Unidare pack, Mary’s backs then started to play simple ball to hand rugby and began to score tries with ease. Mary’s fitness took charge then thanks to the work from Rachel Doolin and the Mary’s players were just too quick and strong for the tired Unidare side. Final result was 46-22 to St Mary’s, next week is a home game against Malahide who narrowly beat Mary’s in the away fixture.
