Boyne U13s tour to Luxembourg 2010

The Boyne U13s rounded off a successful season with a tour to Luxembourg Rugby Club’s under 13 tournament. Boyne had just enough players to make up two teams, the Warriors captained by Hugh Egleston and the Bulls captained by Michael Briscoe. Both teams had a rocky start to the tournament probably not helped by travel the previous day and sleep deprivation through unsanctioned social activity in the youth hostel the night before. The youth hostel on the first night was like a rural training camp and was situated in Hollenfels in the lower reaches of the Ardennes.

Dundalk 10 Boyne 13's 32

Boyne U13s turned on the style yesterday in a stirring victory over Dundalk running in six tries to win 32 10 to reach the semi final of the cup. Foundation for the victory was laid by the pack who must have given away at least 3 kilos per man to their Dundalk rivals. The tight five completely out scrummaged their heavier opponents winning two strikes against the head with good body position and rapid leg pumping. Robert Morgan and Liam Strachan played the entire game and never looked in difficulty.

Boyne 13's 5 Clontarf 39

Boyne put in a gutsy performance today but went down 39 5 to a huge Clontarf outfit. By common consent this was the biggest and best team Boyne have faced all year. A welcome return today from injury was Cormac Jones who scored Boyne's only try. Tadhg Kavanagh was tigerish in the loose and good running by the backs was unfortunate not to have yielded more tries.
