The 19/20 Season began on 26th September. Our Senior team played in a blitz in St. Marys Rugby Club to qualify for the Leinster League Division 3A. We beat Tallaght CS but were narrowly beaten by Benildas and Oatlands, all very competitive games. Our first league match was played in Terenure RFC on Wednesday 16th October vs Ardgillan. St. Colmcilles won 38.14 with Nathan Mullen, Darragh Sisk, Alex Byrne and Johnny Murray all getting over the line for trys. Unfortunately we were beaten in a very very competitive match in October vs Oatlands which prevented the Seniors from moving on to the Semi FInal of the cup. The next competition is the South Dublin Cup in April.
This year for the first year ever we have a first year rugby team. We have decided to pursue a 7 a side rugby blitz which is played once a month. Our first blitz took place on 25th October in horrendous wet and windy conditions. Our first years played brilliantly and got to the final however the final was called off due to bad weather. We have 22 very enthusiastic first years on board this year so next year we hope to have a full squad to play 15 a side.
