Salmo Under 14s Prove the Club Rugby and School Sports CAN Co-Exist!!

(09 Feb 2018)

The transition from Primary to Secondary school is perhaps the most significant challenge for Club Youth rugby as longer schooldays, increased workload, and more after school sports all compete for attention and challenge participation in club rugby activities.  

Our Under 14 squad however is bucking this trend - the commitment from those playing GAA, schools Rugby, Schools Basketball, schools and club Hockey, yet still putting their hand up to remain part of DLSP is simply tremendous.  This has built a really stable platform which has resulted in an unbeaten League and Cup run for the squad to date.  

They've actually even been joined by Jos Esguerra from De La Salle Churchtown so he can get MORE rugby!! Its a source of pride that our Salmo guys are being written about in the papers for their performances for St Benildus, CUS and Oatlands junior cup teams - that's without mentioning the lads attending the traditional rugby schools of Blackrock College, St Michaels College and Terenure College with their legendary training and games schedule. A couple of the lads are even playing Hockey and Basketball at representative level too....incredible stuff! The team spirit and true Salmo values on display by everyone in this great squad is fantastic! Keep it up lads!
