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. The Pirates were well and truly sunk on the banks of the Braid by a pacier, sharper, and much better organised home side. For the second successive match, Buccs failed to score during another disappointing display.
Cork Constitution qualified for their third successive Bateman Cup final when defeating Buccaneers 36-25 at Dubarry Park, Athlone, on Saturday. However, the holders were pushed all the way by the Pirates, who refused to give up on their dream until the final whistle of a lively and entertaining All-Ireland semi-final that warranted a much greater attendance. 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. 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.
Buccaneers’ hopes of a top four finish were boosted while also consigning Corinthians to bottom place in Division 1B after a hard-fought Ulster Bank League encounter under the Clounacauneen floodlights on Friday night when the Pirates shaded the 17-14 verdict. A decent attendance braved a nippy night with intermittent showers for this Connacht derby and, while it lacked fluency, it was always committed and close.
Buccaneers defeated Galwegians 28-14 in a lively Connacht Senior Cup final played at Galway Sportsground last Sunday. Buccs were full value for their double score victory played on a cool but mainly bright afternoon in front of a modest attendance. Both squads did not have the use of contracted players, but the teams put in a committed, absorbing, and entertaining battle for the coveted trophy which makes a long overdue return to the Midlands.
Buccaneers were especially generous leaking three tries in a 23-8 Ulster Bank League Division 1B defeat against Ballymena at Dubarry Park, Athlone, on Saturday. This win strengthened the Northerners’ promotion push as they sit in second place in the league table. It also ensured the hosts' miserable home form continues as only one win has been posted to date this season. Ironically, the Pirates have lost just once on their travels, and they stay in fifth place in the standings.
