J 2 Match Report

St Mary’s J2 59 Blackrock J2 0

For the third year in a row this team goes to the last game of the league series with the title still up for grabs. We needed a huge win over Rock to wipe out Clontarf’s big points difference and we delivered in style. Adopting the legendary Mary’s method of running fast ball if and when it was on from anywhere on the pitch we scored 9 tries of varying degrees of brilliance (note our 5 flankers making up our back 5 in the scrum). James Dunne continued his try scoring bonanza with a hat-trick and Shane Timmons gave a masterclass at openside flanker also scoring a hat-trick of tries in an unbelievable performance. This kid has wheels!! Other scorers were Graham Crawford, Gonza Saenz and Joey Connolly (with a typical stroke of genius).

Thanks to Ruaidhri and the J3’s who gave us great support with Edgie playing a blinder at prop, Gonza scoring a crucial try after half-time, Mark Browne doing very well on the wing and Timmons taking the mick with his crazy hat-trick.

We now go to Clontarf next Saturday needing a bonus point win to defend our title. Carpe Diem!!
