J5 XV 7-9 Clontarf

On Saturday morning the J5’s went out to Castle Ave to play Clontarf in the Metro League Division 10. It was a must win game for the lads in the battle to avoid relegation.

The J5’s started off the stronger side in the first half. Spending long spells in Clontarf’s half. After a number of early chances that they were unlucky to get the J5’s went off for a try mid-way through the half. Scrum half Ryan Barnes getting the try. James Bourke got the conversion. 7-0. The rest of the half remained tight. Mary’s were unlucky to have a penalty hit the posts by the narrowest of margins. Clontarf scored a penalty before the end of the half. Half time score 7-3 to Mary’s.

The 2nd half remained as tight as the first half. Clontarf got 2 more penalties in quick succession to take the lead 9-7. At times when needed there was a great defensive effort from the J5’s. They also looked good in attack but the final changes never game their way. Despite a great performance the lads were very unlucky to lose in the end 7-3.

With two games to go in the league in the battle to avoid relegation. Next up is the Emerald Warriors at home on Saturday at 3pm.
