Understrength Buccs suffer home defeat

Thu, Mar 05, 2015

Buccaneers’ home form woes continued at Dubarry Park when they shipped a 43-6 hiding to Belfast Harlequins in their Ulster Bank League Division 1B game played in testing windy conditions on Saturday. With neither promotion nor relegation to stimulate the mid-table Pirates, they were always likely to struggle against Quins - who although just one place behind Buccs were not quite free from fears of dropping into the dreaded relegation dogfight and, consequently, had the greater motivation for this tie. The northerners scored seven tries in what was their best display in the league to date.

The visitors included a quartet with regular Ulster experience in Neil McComb, Michael Heaney, Rory Scholes, and Sean Reidy. Meanwhile, the hosts were missing seven players from the previous week’s win and, for the second time in three matches, had no Connacht players released to them.

Thu, Feb 26, 2015

Derry to provide far tougher test

Thu, Feb 19, 2015

Buoyed up by a fine opening weekend success, Westmeath will be eager to claim another Allianz Hurling League Division 2A triumph away to Derry at Owenbeg on Sunday.

Derry shared the spoils with Kerry at Austin Stacks Park in Tralee last weekend which demonstrated how resourceful they can be.

Hurlers host London in League opener

Thu, Feb 12, 2015

Buoyed up by spirited displays in the Bord Na Mona Walsh Cup, Westmeath hurlers will be hoping to make a positive start to their Allianz Hurling League Division 2A campaign when hosting London at Cusack Park on Sunday (throw-in, 1pm).

A year ago London and Westmeath divided the spoils when the teams clashed at Ruislip so Michael Ryan’s team will know that the visitors have the potential to cause them problems. London, now under the stewardship of Fergus McMahon, who captained them to Nicky Rackard Cup success in 2005, will be without several key players as Kilburn Gaels are in action at Croke Park against O’Donovan Rossa in the All Ireland Intermediate Club Final.
