Ardscoil Senior Rugby squad got their campaign off to a winning start when they defeated St. Kevin’s, Dunlavin 28-0. The experience of the Ardscoil squad showed against a less experienced Dunlavin side. Three first half tries from Caoimhghín Bradshaw, Darren Byrne, Luke Barry and a late second half score from Dylan Corcoran capped an enjoyable victory. Darren Byrne kicked 4 out of 4 with style.

All the Ardscoil squad had a run, impressive fielding and running by rugby novices Cathal Harrington and Fionn O’Rourke marked them out as stars of the future. Next fixture against St. David’s Greystones may prove a sterner test. Full squad will be needed for training on Wednesday.

Eoin Cooney and Jack Treacy made up the numbers for a depleted St. Kevin’s side midway through the second half. Both players were a credit to their school and Eoin in particular looked very comfortable in his new jersey.IMG_3104
