3rd XV in Forster Plate Final this sat 6th April

Saturday the 6th of April sees the 3rd XV contest the final of the Forster Plate competition, playing against Ballyclare 3rd XV.

The final will be played at Holywood RFC with a kick-off time of 13:30.

Saturday’s final is being played as a league/cup double header and will also bring the curtain down on what has been a long season for the 3’s.

Having been promoted at the end of last season the 3’s have been punching above their weight, remaining competitive throughout. A win on Saturday will not only see the 3’s finish the season with some silver wear, it will also see them finish in the top half of a very competitive league.

En route to the final the squad has overcome some tough opposition and Saturdays match against Ballyclare will be no different.

Ballyclare will be bringing a large travelling support as their 4th XV play in the Forster Cup final at Ravenhill after our match, so the 3’s would really appreciate as many Instonians supporters as possible to come along and to help the squad with our own vocal support.

So if you’re not traveling to support the 1’st XV flying the club flag in Connemara, then why not take the opportunity to make your way to Holywood RFC on Saturday at 13:30, to cheer on the 3’s in what should be a great game of rugby, and hopefully the first part of a successful day for the senior club.
