Connacht derby comes to Dubarry Park

Thu, Oct 02, 2014

Buccaneers host leaders Galwegians in the Ulster Bank League Division 1B at Dubarry Park, Athlone won Saturday afternoon with a 2.30pm kick off. A bumper attendance is anticipated for this first Connacht derby of the season.

Just like predecessors Terenure College last season, the Division 2A champions have hit the ground running and top the table following three narrow wins in their opening fixtures. Early scores in a pair of these games helped ‘Wegians on their way and a potent backline has ensured bonus point successes over Dublin University and Shannon, but it took a last-play Ciaran Gaffney drop goal to pip UL Bohemians last Saturday. Matt Dever and Jerome Harimate are speedsters on the flanks with Brian Murphy solid and secure in the centre while John Cleary has a knack of scoring against the Pirates. Jarlath Naughton, Jack Dineen and Brian McClearn are key figures in their pack where ex-Bucc Eoin Rooney could also feature.
