Final Home Game: Saturday is a huge game for Nenagh as we welcome Barnhall RFC to New Ormond Park in the penultimate Energia AIL game of the season. Nenagh need just a bonus point from this game to take the league title while the visitors must win and stop Nenagh taking any points from the game to keep the contest alive for another week. It makes for a mouth watering prospect and one which no local rugby fan will want to miss. The clubhouse will be open with a full bar and entertainment on offer and there is a draw being run on the day for a €500 cash prize with the winner to be drawn in the clubhouse post match. For a €10 entry fee you will not find a better day’s sporting entertainment than a trip to Lisatunny on Saturday. Kick off is at 2.30pm. Get out early and wear the red and white and hopefully we can roar Nenagh on to a historic achievement.

U14: Nenagh Ormond under 14s travelled to Ennis on Sunday last to play in the Pan Munster Quarter final. The weather took a turn as the warm ups started with a constant drizzle all the time leaving handling conditions quite difficult. Ennis kicked off the game and Nenagh put themselves under pressure straight away but weathered the onslaught from the opposition very well. The game in its entirety was a right tussle with neither team giving an inch. Most of the game was played between both 22s. Ennis were first to strike and scored a try after 15 mins which they converted. After that try Nenagh upped the ante in the and were very unlucky not to get a score on the board. Nenagh carried with intent all game, rucked very well and the effort levels were huge from all players.

In the second third the game continued in the same vein, a real tight contest between both 22s. A bounce of a ball in the greasy conditions made what looked a certain try for us more difficult when a ball was kicked through. Nenagh threw the kitchen sink at the opposition and kept the ball moving from wing to wing looking for an opening. The handling from the players in difficult conditions was a testament to the efforts of the players. However in the last play of second third Ennis scored a long range try against the run of play when Nenagh were pushing for a try of their own. In the final third the bench was emptied and efforts levels continued to be very high. We finally got a try which our efforts deserved. Anluan White finished off a good team try. The final score was 12-7. Overall it was a disappointing result for the team but it should be noted that the team played so well. From 1-23 every player gave it everything and left everything on the field. We have one more competition to play in, the North Munster Cup. We play Ballina/Killaloe in the quarter final. Training continues Wednesday evening

U12 Tour: The U12 team embarked on an exciting tour last weekend to Barcelona. Excitement was palpable on Thursday afternoon as players, coaches and parents assembled in Lisatunny to make the short trip to Shannon airport and a flight to the sunny south of Spain. There was no rest for our band of warriors as it was straight down to business on Thursday night when we played a whopping 5 matches vs Tarragona RFC and Salou RFC. This was a good introduction to the unfamiliar, warm conditions ahead the next day. Saturday brought us to a big blitz in Amposta. The weather was a sweltering 26 degrees and it was a great day’s rugby. Some of the teams we played were

Rugby Sitges, Barcelona University Club, Rugby Sant Boi, Rugby Sant Cugat, Taus Amposta, Cau Valencia, Valencia Rugby and Rugby Abelles.

Pitting their skills against totally new and unfamiliar opposition was a fantastic experience and the lads played some great rugby.

Saturday was a memorable day as we headed off to Fuerteventura Amusement Park. A fantastic, sun filled day was had by all. After the Park we went to the beach next to the Cambrils resort and took further enjoyment from the beautiful weather.

The trip was incredible from start to finish and the boys and parents had an incredible time. Plans are already in place for when these boys are u14 and further European adventures!. A huge thanks to all the parents that came on the trip. Also to the boys who played some awesome rugby. This Friday the boys are going to the Good Friday Blitz in Shannon RFC where hopefully they will put their skills to further good use. Well done one and all.
