Mauritz Hansen visit Kirwan Park

Mauritz Hansen visit Kirwan Park

(20 Sep 2019)



Last night we welcomed touring side Mauritz Hansen from Johannesburg to Kirwan Park for a friendly fixture.

It was a beautiful evening and we were treated to a great game which saw Salmo emerge victorious 29-5.

Jack Norton opened the scoring on 5 mins but Mauritz replied not long after with a try of their own.

An Adam O'Leary penalty on 25 mins pushed the home side into an 8-5 lead but the game turned on two tries from Adam Skelly on the half hour and the stroke of halftime which saw Salmo take a 22-5 lead into the break.

The game lacked the same fluency after the interval and the only score of the half saw Jack Norton cross for his second on 60 mins which was superbly converted by Adam O'Leary to make it 29-5.

The game was played in an excellent spirit and we wish our visitors well as they continue their tour with stops in Cork and Limerick.

Thanks to everyone who came out to support the squad last night.

Also our thanks to the good folks at Activities Ireland for facilitating last night's game.
