1st XV away to Connacht Champions Connemara 1st XV in Round Robin Match 2

1st XV after winning their League are now in the Round Robin matches – against the winners of the Leinster, Munster & Connacht Leagues: Enniscorthy, Clonmel & Connemara.

Match 1 saw us get off to a slow start against the Leinster Champions Enniscorthy allowing them to go into a 21-0 lead. Better 2nd half but Enniscorthy held on to win 27-12.

Match 2 this sat 6th April is at Connemara, with the team needing a win to keep a slot in the play-off match alive.
