Thu, Feb 15, 2018

Galwegians will hope they have turned the corner after grabbing a second win on the trot in the Ulster Bank League division 2A when edging high-flyers Nenagh Ormond at Crowley Park by 16-14.

The visitors, who put 50 points on Wegians in November, opened up an 11-6 lead with two penalties from prolific fullback Clayton Stewart, and a try from winger Nicky Irwin. Galwegians kept in touch through outhalf Morgan Codyre, with the pack boosted by the return from injury of captain Anthony Ryan following a lengthy lay-off. They used to their dominant scrum to their advance, and although the Blues had to sustain more intense pressure, disciplined defence keep their line intact before the half-time break.
