Carlsberg came to Instonians at Shawsbridge tonight.

in top of the table clash.

Meanwhile the 2nd XV win 19=12 against Malone 3rd XV.

You can still hear the Rickety!!

Instonians inflict first league defeat of the season on Dromore
Instonians 13 Dromore 5
Instonians came out on top in this very physical and hard fought game to reverse

their only defeat in the first game of the season away to Dromore.
Dromore had a slender 3-5 lead at half time but Instonians struck back in the early

minutes of the second period with a converted try and then sealed the win with a

penalty. It was a game of strong defences by both sides.

Team 1 to 17: Alan Whitten, Conor Gallagher,  John Andress, Sean Shuttleworth, Tom

Matthews, Cameron Barr, Massimo Kiri Kiri, James Martin, Paul Marshall, Richard

McCarthy, Donal Maloney, David Scott, Matt Kilpatrick, Colm Cregan, Paddy Bell,

Johnny Mooney, Wayne Kelly.
