Former Boyne RFC & Old Wesley Irishman Conor Maguire involved against Leinster after earning short-term deal in Dragons

IRISH PROP CONOR Maguire has been named on the Dragons’ bench for tomorrow’s Guinness Pro14 clash against his native Leinster at the RDS, having recently agreed a short-term contract with the Welsh region.
23-year-old Maguire was part of Leinster’s senior training squad for two months at the start of 2020 but then moved to Wales to join the Dragons on trial in March.
Maguire had just one replacement appearance off the bench against Benetton in the Pro14 just before lockdown struck, but he made a good impression in that very short stint.

The sudden & untimely passing of U13 Youth Coach Andrew Dobson

It is with great sadness to inform you of the devastating news of Andrew Dobson’s passing.

As most of you are aware, Andrew started the coaching of the then U6 Boyne rugby team way back in 2012.

His total commitment, persona and passion for coaching and the game is a testimony to the large group of players and coaches which is evident today (40 players & 10 coaches).

Andrew had an uncompromising vision and ethos for the squad that we will humbly endeavour to fulfil to its fruition.
