"Hi all, The Trinity tea tournament was very much fun it was a two day tournament and Maynooth Ultimate were able to send two teams (Long Island tea) and (Licorice). Both teams did very well and it was great for all the new players to get a sensation of what a frisbee match looks like. The two teams got to play against each other which was the most important match of the day. The tournament was on the 12th and 13th of November it was very well organised and great to have it early in the academic year to meet other players in other teams. We had a bus leave from MU to Santry for both days which made it very easy to all the players to get to the place. Well done to all those who participated in the tournament and we are looking forward to all upcoming events. "

Unfortunately the lads lost out 16-24 to a strong Queen's 15 who had several Ulster players. Excellent performances from Shane Stokes (year 3), Connor O Brien (graduate '21) and David Dooley (year 2) were noted as selection hots up for the Irish Universities squad. David cannot be selected as he is already named in Ireland Under 19s.Our men's 2nds had an excellent win home to Old Wesley while our under 20 men saw off UCD in premier 2 14-17 in a wintry day at Belfield. Our U23s men suffered a narrow loss to Wanderers FC with a far younger side however we played some sublime rugby with great pace on show from Ben Fleming and Michael Browne (both year 1).Our Women's sides had tough weeks as we had a lengthy injury list gather leading in to the weekend. We suffered losses to Railway Union and Athy (D1 and D4 respectively) but the girls remain in 2nd.We begin our midweek SSI league next Wednesday 10th for the men, away to TU Dublin.DON'T forget social TAG rugby every Monday 7-8pm on the astro/all weather pitch and grass pitches (depending on size of group!)."
