No stopping rugby league’s rampant Tribesmen

The Tribesmen continued their recent fine form with an impressive 52-0 win over the Dublin City Exiles on Saturday.

Galway's rugby league title holders ran in nine unanswered tries - the first as earlier as the ninth minute - and they were 22-0 in front at half-time.

Eddie Weaver started the dominant South Park show with a try, and before the break had added a second, while Enda Standford and Aaran Byrne also added to the try tally - three of which were converted by Peter O'Neill.

At the other end strong defence from the Tribesmen kept the visitors, also guilty of poor handling, from scoring, and that continued into the second half with another knock on after sustained pressure near the Tribesmen's line.

It gave Tribesmen's Seosamh McDonagh the chance to score his first try, with O’Neill, who added the two points, also touching down a couple of minutes later and converting for a 34-0 after 49 minutes.

There was no way back when Tongan centre Mata Fifita claimed the restart, setting up field position from a 60 metre for hooker Ryan Guilfoyle to score. Aussie Nick Clark scored an opportunistic try for the second week running, and the Tribesmen completed the rout with a third try from Weaver.

The Tribesmen, still unbeaten this year, will be missing six of their squad who travel to Australia to represent Ireland in the Student World Cup next month.
