After a tense start Alan Foley put the first try over the line for Boyne after 10 minutes. Euan Canniffe beautifully converted. It didn't take long for Skerries to come back with a try after 15 minutes of play. They duly converted to have the game level. It wasn't long after Skerries put a second score on the board but failed to convert. Boyne's defence fell apart and Skerries took advantage and ran in a third try. This woke up Boyne and quickly the came back well organised and Lucas McKeen dived over the try line for a fantastic try.
Well Done to Boyne RFC U13's who travelled to Naas yesterday to play Tullamore in the Leinster Premier League Final.
Half time the boys were 24-8 down and to come back and beat them 25-24..What an acheivement.
Well Done Lads.
On Friday 27th March Boyne U13's met in Shamrock Lodge at 6am to start their Wales Tour. They were competing in the miTour North Wales Challenge Cup. They had 2 teams entering the competition. They went out on Saturday and played some fine rugby which got both teams into the Semi Finals on Sunday. We arrived to the matches on Sunday to torrential rain and after playing one game in that rain, both teams made it to the finals. Tour organisers then moved all games to an indoor arena after all pitches became water logged.
The Under13 team is for boys who are 12 years of age on January 1st 2015, i.e. those born in 2002.
Training takes place on Monday & Thursday evenings @ 6.30pm in Bryanstown.
The manager for the upcoming season is Sean Rochford and the coaches can be reached by email at U13.Coach@BoyneRFC.ie.

Boyne U13’s B travelled to Malahide early on Sunday morning buoyant after the great game against North Meath the previous week. Unfortunately Malahide only arrived with 10 players and luckily Boyne travel with 22. Five Boyne players played for Malahide in the first have and put in a great shift for the host team. With Todd scoring against his own club! Two additional Malahide players arrived at half time and this gave the coaches some room to make positional changes. The second half produced some great running rugby by both teams with the Boyne players on both teams to the fore.
Boyne U13’s A followed up their hard fought 12-5 win against Newbridge last week with a win away to Clane in the first round of the Leinster Club. The game finished with a scoreline of 24-10 but it could and should have been more. Great tries from Danial Mol, Cian F, Colm P and Ethan V and two conversions from James F sealed the victory on a cold but dry February morning. The first half proved to be a bit of an arm-wrestle with neither side getting the upper hand, with the ball being played amongst the forwards.
