2nd XV lose in Crawford Plate to Randalstown 2nd XV

Instonians played well first half, scrum dominated, and we kept them in their half for most of the half. A few unforced errors and missed tackles allowed Randalstown to get their first score and again poor discipline allowed them a penalty in front of the posts.

But Instonians came back, few pick and goes got Alan Whitten over the line and converted by Wayne Kelly.

10 mins into the second half Jack Scott got a red card for an incident off the ball and that let Randalstown take advantage of us on the outside which led to their next few tries.

Then a yellow card for Wayne Kelly meant Instonians where down to 13, and again it was then easy for Randalstown to score a few on the outside. 

Final score:      

Instonians 2nd XV 7 – Randalstown 2nd XV 52


Good luck to Randalstown in the next round.


Thanks to the referee for managing the match well.
