Boyne were left reeling after the Greystones right wing scored a hat-trick of tries in the first 10 minutes. However, Boyne pulled it back to 19-12 at half time with two great tries by second row Ruairi O'Grady and out-half Craig Doolan. O'Grady's try was the product of some superb interplay by the forwards and backs while Doolan's try came after a great break by scrum-half Sean Dunne who put his out-half away on the wing.
Boyne RFC travelled to Wanderers FC for an under 13s metro league match last Sunday.
Boyne got off to a good start with some good rucking and handling but turned the ball over to let the home team in for an early try.
Wanderers used that as a platform and through good handling and width of play ran in 4 more unanswered tries before half time despite good close in tackling by Boyne who were caught on the outside all too often.
The Under-13's team is for players who were aged 12 on the 30th of June 2007, i.e. those whose date of birth is between 1st July 1994 and 30th June 1995.

SEASON OVER - ENJOY YOUR SUMMER
For this 1st international tournament which was held in Luxembourg, which we hope is the beginning of a long series Luxembourg fielded two teams the Dragons with the colors of the Rugby Club Luxembourg and the Lions faced the clubs of Metz, Boyne (Ireland), Guilford (GB) and Petrovice (Czech Republic). Between the imposing size of the Czech players and the quality of play of Boyne the tournament was of a very high level. The Dragons fought bravely but lost to Boyne by 3-1.
