News & Match Reports for the 1st XV

Midleton 27 - 0 Boyne Senior XV (AIL - 15/11/2014)

Boyne played their fifth game in this league on Saturday last and this was their third away trip to the rebel county to play Middleton, having earlier played Kanturk and Highfield in this league. A large contingent of club supporters travelled with the team to give them support and they stayed in the Cork town overnight on Saturday last.
The Middleton side have recruited well and as a result of this they are a much stronger outfit than the one which visited Shamrock Lodge last year.

Ulster Bank AIL 2B Boyne 13pts DLSP 29pts

This game was preceded by an incessant downpour which thankfully ceased just prior to kick off at Shamrock Lodge last Saturday. The home side had hopes of picking up precious league points from this match but despite long periods of dominance they lost concentration at vital stages to hand the initiative to their opponents who gratefully accepted them to run in four tries and gain a bonus point in a 29pts total. Boyne had a total of 13pts for their efforts which consisted of a penalty try and conversion and a penalty each by Tyler Lansdowne and Karl Keogh.

Highfield 50 - 3 Boyne Senior XV (Ulster Bank AIL Div 2B)

Boyne’s young side suffered a chastening experience when they travelled to Model Farm Road in Cork City on Saturday last to take on the div2b league leaders, Highfield, in a tie that was played in dreadful conditions with torrential rain falling heavily throughout the game. The Cork side have seen a number of their former players return to the club having plied their wares at a higher level and this was apparent in physicality and maturity compared to Boyne’s young side.

Ulster Bank AIL DIV 2B Boyne 24pts Ards 20pts

This was a must win game for both sides to lift them off the bottom of the table. Boyne were smarting over their defeat the previous week in Kanturk and went into this game in determined fashion right from the start. However, they gave the large Shamrock Lodge crowd many anxious moments before snatching a fantastic win in the last play of the game when replacement winger, Cormac Brodigan, finished off a sustained period of play with a fantastic try in the corner.

AIL Div 2B KANTURK 35pts BOYNE 10pts

Kanturk were celebrating their first ever AIL match on their own home ground and they certainly did not disappoint their enthusiastic home supporters, running out comfortable winners and scoring four tries to achieve maximum league points from the game against a Boyne team who were at the receiving end of their exuberance.

(A.I.L. Div 2B) Boyne 10 - 34 Greystones (20/09/2014)

Conditions could not have been more ideal at Shamrock Lodge on Saturday last with autumn sunshine beaming down on the splendidly manicured grounds on the Ballymakenny Road. There were a number of history making "firsts" preceding the opening AIL game this season, when this years President, Phoebe Leonard, hosted her inaugural pre-match lunch as the first lady President of the club. There was another "first" when the new face of UTV Ireland, Alison Comyn, became the first lady to perform the pre-match lunch speaker duties.
