Our 1st Year rugby team took to the field for only the second time today to face local rivals, St. David's. St David's came with a huge 28 player panel so it was decided that Chanel's 12 men would take on the David's men, in three 10 v 10 games.
This proved to be no problem for the ever-improving Chanel team who won all 3 of their games against St David's.
Adam Dromgoole with a massive display, running in a handful of tries alongside the tackling menace, Jake Roche, who is proving to be a star player for Chanel.
Sean Mulligan was also particularly impressive stepping into the scrum-half role for the first time.
Billy Ryan and Cillian Maher were strong carriers of the ball throughout the game.
Well done to all players on an impressive win. There are certainly some bright prospects on the horizon for Chanel Rugby.
