Rugby round-up

(Development officer)

"As we have now finished the rugby season, it has been a historic campaign for our University club!   Our men 1st XV won every game in the All Ireland League finishing as champions with 18 wins from 18 games and 12 try bonus points! Incredible and to be presented with All Ireland League trophy on the north campus after our win versus Skerries tied in beautifully with the University Open Day in April! Our women's XV won Leinster division 3 and are also champs! Our under 20 men finished 6th in amongst the best under 20 sides in the country, the highlight of their season coming at home in the cup defeating landslide league winners Clontarf 28-21 - an incredible feat! Our u23 men XV lost their league final, winning 12/14 regular season games but coming up just short in the league final, losing 9-6 away to Greystones. A great season men. Our 2nd XV men finished 3rd in metro 2 and won the metropolitan plate too - more silverware! Our under 18.5 youth boys won the double with two students amongst the team and a raft joining us for their 3rd level studies from 2019 onwards the future looks promising! Overall, our Maynooth University Barnhall teams have been oustanding in the clubs 50th year. The club looks set to be one of, if not the biggest in the country next year with no fewer than 6 men's teams, a top class under 20 team and 2 women's teams - 9 adult teams on top of all our mini rugby and youth rugby and our disability squad too!"
