U18s win against Shannon
Tralee 27 – Shannon 0.
In blustery conditions at O’ Dowd Park, Shannon started very well playing against the wind putting Tralee under pressure initially. The Tralee pack were able to absorb this and it led to the ball being turned over and being spread wide to Jack O’ Suilleabhain who scored the first of his 2 tries. Sam Boyle converted to make it 7-0. It was nip & tuck for a while but Tralee came out on top of most exchanges thanks to the work rate of the whole team. It would be wrong to single out anyone in particular but the foundation was laid out by the front row, made up of pack leader Rob Murphy, Adam Bohan and Joe Benjamin who set a solid platform all day. Joe is improving with every game and made several great carries. Ml. Leen Vega worked his socks off and made some beautiful off-loads and Chris Lowe was also very effective. The back row of Rory Mc Namara who had his first start of the season along with ML. Lyne & Giles Appelby all worked tirelessly making tackle after tackle and securing very valuable ruck ball and making a lot of yards with the ball in hand.
