What happened last week at Instonians Rugby – Sat 6th Nov



Wed 3rd Nov

U21s Academy win 38-33 away to Donaghadee U21s Academy

Instonians had a last play of the game victory.

That says it all about this squad of players.

Their coach/manager Scott Hanley came down with “man flu” but Alex Caldwell stepped into the role.

With the support of Captain Harry Reid they managed the night and led the team to victory.

This U21s section is a return to Instonians this year.

Through it and the enthusiasm of Scott Hanley we have players involved in the club that had previously been lost to Rugby.

Ulster Rugby confirmed this week that there will definitely be an U21s Academy Cup in Q1 2022, which the team are excited for. But for now they are focussing on their league matches and more player recruitment.

Clear you diary and get down to support the team


2nd XV – Conceded the match away to Clogher Valley 2nd XV

Unfortunately we could not field a suitable team to play at Clogher Valley 2nd XV.

Particularly in the front row we had too many injuries and unavailability’s.

Whilst this season the pool of players we have is the best for years, you always need more and we will endeavour to do so.

Apologies to Clogher Valley and we will visit them in April to make amends.


3rd XV – no game
