St. Colmcilles Senior Rugby Team had their first league match on Thursday 28th September vs Tallaght CS.
Colmcilles started well with a try in the corner by winger Daniel Moran. Jack Flanagan soon followed up with a try and converted it also. Tallaght put up a brave defence however Chris Vickery was too fast for them and slipped in in the corner for another Colmcilles try.
17 - 0 at half time, we were looking good!
Tallaght came out all guns blazing in the second half and put 14 points on the board with two converted trys - narrowing the lead to 3 points. Thankfully Luke Gaffney skillfully maneuvered himself over the line in the dying minutes to close the game out 22 - 14. A great start to our league campaign.
Colmcilles will play MacDaras in there next league game week commencing 2nd or 9th October.
