Round 5 Bank of Ireland Under 18 Conference League 4.
Saturday 19th November 2016
O'Dowd Park Tralee.
Tralee RFC. 38
Castleisland Abbeyfeale 3.
Tralee RFC Under 18's dispatched with ease the opposition on a mild winter day in Tralee. The win was easier than expected but well deserved all the same.
Our lads were well organised and pretty clinical on finishing the moves.
After a run of bad results the under 14 steadied themselves this week with a narrow loss away to Castleisland under lights Wednesday evening . Castleisland got the better of a sporting encounter winning by 5 nill but Tralee showed great heart in defense and you could see we had more to offer . Credit to both teams the game was played in a tough sporting manner and both teams and clubs came away with positives from the meeting .
Our lads had a light session and a chance to regroup on Saturday before meeting a solid well drilled Abbeyfeal today on Tralee . in front of a decent home crowd Tralee came out on top with a scoreline of 18 to 12 . Again it was a cracking game no quarter asked or given. Again both clubs were able to take something out of the game and again played on a decent sporting manner with both teams performing well .
Our Lads showed us more of what they are capable of with another big improvement .
Rob, Aiden and the other coaches are doing great things with this group and it's starting to show . Well done to all involved .
