Wednesday 18th September
Rugby. Our first year boys’ rugby team travelled to High School for a blitz which included Newpark, Mt Temple and Temple Carraig. 22 players travelled and split into 2 10-aside teams. Between them, they won 6 games, drew one and lost one in what was a very successful days rugby.
Our Junior Boys Cup Team had an evening game against near neighbours Mullingar RFC. In total 18 Wilson’s players started the game with Jude, Ciaran and Finn lining out for Mullingar. The first half was very competitive and ended level. WHS greater size told in the second half and they pulled away to win 40-22. Plenty of stand out performances with Ross, Sam and Tom the pick of the bunch.
The Senior Boys Cup Team got their competitive season underway, losing out to Newpark Comprehensive. The teams were level after 40 minutes 26 all. Tries were from David, Walter (2) and Ben. Newpark’s superior fitness showed in final quarter scoring 3 late tries to pull away for a deserved win. Plenty of positives for the Seniors to take from the game. Up next is St Michael’s on Wednesday before the second round of the league v Temple Carraig a week later.
