Boyne U8's Win Fair Play Award

Boyne U8’s headed to Armagh RFC on Saturday 12th April for their end of year blitz.  A busy schedule of games and bigger opposition would test our young stars of the future.  We fielded two teams of 12 players, with rolling subs – Boyne Tigers & Boyne Lions.  Our lads took what they learned throughout the year at training and went about their business in a much disciplined manner.  This lead to us winning the ‘Fair Play Award’, the only award that can be won at this festival – number of tries scored or games won does not count at this level.  The award is based on various factors, s

Dundalk Blitz - 27/10/2013

Sun, 27/10/2013 - 18:23 — Peter Dooley

U8's Bru na Boinne

Perfect playing conditions and enough players to field two U8 teams led to some great rugby from our stars of the future. With only two weeks training under their belt, it took both sides a few minutes to settle into the game.

Under 8's 2005 team end of season rugby weekend..

A big thank you from all the coaches to all the parents who brought the lads week in week out to every match, come rain or shine... well maybe not to much shine this season.

about 36 of our 46 strong team travelled to every match far out weighing every other club we played. We hope all the players enjoyed the season as much as we did. They made huge leaps forward as a squad I personally was very proud of every single players development this season off and on the pitch.


Venue: Armagh Rugby Club, Palace Grounds, Friary Road, Armagh. Meet 9:15 AM Please give yourself plenty of time as the traffic entering Armagh was very heavy last year and some players were late. (Travel time approx 1hr 30mins) There will be two under 8 teams involved. Six games each of 10 minutes running up to 2:00 PM. There will be plenty of sitting about so we would encourage parents to bring deck chairs, picnic, hot drinks and warm clothes for all. It is a great days rugby and hopefully the sun will shine!
