Buccaneers endured another torrid outing in their final Ulster Bank League Division 1B fixture of the season when soundly walloped 45-0 by Ballymena at Eaton Park, on Saturday.

Cork Constitution qualified for their third successive Bateman Cup final when defeating Buccaneers 36-25 at Dubarry Park, Athlone, on Saturday.

Cork Con scored five tries, but received a fright from a committed and sustained Buccs effort.
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.

The northerners scored seven tries in what was their best display in the league to date.
