U20s Storm Stradbrook!

U20s Storm Stradbrook!

(29 Sep 2019)


Our U20s travelled to Stradbrook Road this afternoon to take on Blackrock College RFC in the second of three huge games as the squad strives to secure qualification for division 2 of the JP Fanagan League this season.

Following last weekend's defeat to Old Belvedere, nothing less than a victory would suffice and the travelling Salmo support was treated to a seven-try, five-star performance that puts qualification back in our own hands.

Stephen Meagher opened the scoring on 5 mins with a mazy run that left the home defence clutching at shadows and the lead increased on 12 mins when Jake Finlay countered from deep and Cameron Stewart added the extras.

Nathan Slattery crossed on 25 mins and it just kept getting better for the visitors as Ben Buckley-Hallion dived over for the fourth with Stephen getting his second of the day on the stroke of halftime to see us turn around 31-0 ahead.

Two further tries from Nathan and James Feeney saw Salmo into a 45-0 lead before Blackrock finally got themselves onto the scoreboard with a converted try as the game wound down to a close and a final score of 45-7.

Next up for the lads is Corinthians at home on Sunday 6th October with a 3:00 PM kickoff. A win will be enough to see us into division 2 so we will be appealing to the entire Salmo family to come out for this one.

Tries: Stephen Meagher (2), Jake Finlay, Nathan Slattery (2), Ben Buckley-Hallion, James Feeney.

Cons: Cameron Stewart (4), Jake Finlay
