Latest Club Update
Posted by Kinsale RFC on Friday 4 April 2008
1st XV made the long trek to play Scarriff from east Co Clare. This will be the first time Scarriff and Kinsale met in competition - Scarriff already taking Killarney's scalp. Kinsale had enough guile and experience to deal with the very adverse weather conditions, emerging deserving winners. Tries by Tadhg Wright, Cian O'Brien, Fraser Hodgson and John O'Sullivan with 2 tries conversions and a penalty by Hodgson. The final score read 27 - 7 to Kinsale. The Linehan Cup was also presented to John O'Sullivan, Captain, to mark the winning of the J1 Division 3 League. The trophy was presented by Paul Collins, Hon Secretary, and Munster Junior Committee after the match against Scarriff. Kinsale will know face the winners of Castleisland - Charleville 1/4 final. Further details of the O'Sullivan Cup Semi-Final, at the time of writing are not yet known. Next Sunday week (13th April) sees the prospect of another battle royal (home fixture) - this time against Crosshaven - in the 1/4 final of the County Cup. K.O will be 2.30 pm and a very big crowd will be expected as this will be second cup fixture between the fellow seasiders. Kinsale's 2nd XV will take on the winners of Fermoy / Mallow in the Semi - Final of the J3 Cup, probably next Sunday also... This will be an away fixture for Kinsale. Finally, our U-18's are showing the way by beating a fancied Mitchelstown XV stormy ( weather ! ) game on pitch 3, Saturday morning, winning 17-12 and now will meet Fermoy in the U-18 Development Cup Final very soon. The players are staying focused as they really want to win this trophy... As usual when further details are available regarding Fixtures, members will be advised.
