Boyne u18’s v Ashbourne u19/u20

Boyne u18’s v Ashbourne u19/u20 Ashbourne 17 - 19 Boyne This was a huge step up in opposition for this Boyne side, with Ashbourne being short of numbers at the u18 level, our young side kicked off against an Ashbourne side made up of a select group of players from their u19 and u20 sides. This was a coveted exhibition match with great support from locals and distinguished guests that included the President of Leinster rugby and the President of IRFU.

Boyne U18s pre season friendly v Suttonians RFC

Boyne under 18's

Pre-season friendly v Suttonians Rfc

This was the under 18's first game under the new age grade regulations, with the combination of new players and some having a second year at this level, there was a new look to the this years team based around the core players from last years Under 17's.

This was a super win for Boyne, the first over Sutton for this group of players. All the pre- season training in the gym and on the bikes has certainly paid off with super performances from the lads, old and new.

Boyne U18 capped for Ireland
