Boyne V's Navan U9's March 2014

 
What a great day, our players volunteering to play for the opposition always makes all the coaches proud, shows they are all there comitted to playing rugby...
 Taking what we did at training into the match day worked well,  with my team the full focus was on tackling, they did really well coming very close in the second game, there were some flickers of brilliant play with  passes going out to the wing and several tries run in. Well, done to all the players in my team, looking forward to saturday and trying to fine tune that tackle so we can make it every time.

U9 Blitz Sun 15th Dec @ Balbriggan

A huge turnout from the U9 squad with 40 kids and all available coaches making the early trip to Balbriggan for the 10am Kick Off. It was nice and fresh and it did not take long for all to wake up and get stuck into the morning's rugby. All the coaches were very happy with the three teams that played and subs were swapped in and out so nobody developed frost bite on the bench! I do have to mention John's team who never played together before and met with some strong opposition.

U9 engage in competitive and tough Blitz v Bective and Dundalk 1st Dec

Boyne U9 had a very tough Sunday morning  against Bective and Dundalk. Three teams were fielded and some of our strong players were unavailable for the fixture requiring others to step up to the mark. You sometimes learn more in defeat than in victory and this was the case here in Dundalk RFC. A really strong effort against Bective and hugely physical saw the spoils pretty much shared, but the subsequent two Dundalk games were lost despite some wonderful defensive play by the old reliables.
