Energia All Ireland League Division 1B
St. Mary’s College RFC v Buccaneers
Saturday 7th October 2023
Welcome to Templeville Road for the return of the 2023-2024 Energia All Ireland League Division 1B action. The visitors on Saturday are Buccaneers.
The visitors have played 3 games so far this season in the Bank of Ireland Connacht Senior League and also, they received a walk over. They had a good start beating Corinthians at home followed up by an away win over Galwegians. In their final game they relinquished their title to Sligo.
The home side have played 3 very tight Leinster Senior Cup games losing two and winning last time in a very close encounter with Clontarf. In between these games they had a training camp in Valencia to help with their AIL preparations.
As excitement builds for the restart of the new All Ireland League Season, a great game is in store in Templeville Road.
