Rugby. On a wet and windy afternoon in Wilson's - our First Year (with a handful of second years) boys rugby team made light work of a travelling Clongowes Wood team. Wilson's first years remain undefeated this year and this was their eigth victory.
Playing with the wind in the first half Wilson's added tries through Joel (2) and Sam (2) with Michael adding two conversions. Hard running from the pack was causing Clongowes lots of problems on a day when the conditions made tacking difficult. Clongowes added a try of their own in the first half leaving the score 24-7 at the interval.
Amazing playing into the wind in the second half saw Wilson's add 7 tries from 7 different scorers. Edward, Sam, James, Stephen, Michael, Tom and William all got their names on the score sheet while Tom added a conversion on what was a tough day for kicking. Clongowes added 2 tries in the second half to leave the final score 61-19 in favour of Wilson's.
In the pack Fintan, Charlie and Finn did a lot of the tough work at ruck time. In the backs Ignacio, Michael and Elliott linked well and always looked dangerous with the ball in hand. Man of the Match goes to Kevin who linked, tackled, rucked and showed an excellent attitude throughout.
Next week the First Year Boys travel to St Columba's College to play a blitz format against St. Columba’s and St Paul's. Well done boys. Keep up the good work.
