Balbriggan 12 Navan 8
Balbriggan deservedly won the Div III Leinster League title on Sunday in Naas. Having gone through the season unbeaten it would have been a travesty had they not come through the playoffs to win the title. The ladies from Navan had other ideas and pushed the Balbriggan Ladies right to the final whistle. On a beautiful warm sunny day in Naas, the ladies from Navan had nothing to lose and having lost twice in the regular season against Balbriggan knew what to expect and had obviously done their homework. It was Balbriggan who started the game going forward and with the slight slope on the Naas pitch were spending good time in the Naas half. Continue reading →

Balbriggan RFC’s U13’s played their last Leinster League match at home against Coolmine RFC on Thursday night. Balbriggan had already won all six of their games in the League and were hoping to make a clean sweep of it with victory in their final outing before the playoffs. This was a very tough encounter against a really strong and well drilled Coolmine outfit. Balbriggan got off to the perfect start, scoring a try through Jimmy McFadden after just a minute was played. Jimmy ran in from half way and made his way under the posts. Will Kavanagh added the points. Captain Josh Buraimoh doubled Balbriggan’s lead within minutes with another fine try, also converted by Will Kavanagh. Continue reading →
