Under 18.5s finish top of League Table!

(09 Feb 2018)

The lads finished off the league campaign proper with a cracking 36-14 win over a decent Barnhall side a couple of weeks back, and as a result finished top of the league and guaranteed a home semi-final (as an important aside, the match was played in the De La Salle Churchtown school grounds - further underpinning the excellent co-operative relationship that we have between Salmo and DLSC...thanks again!).

At the time of writing the date and opposition for the semi-final hasn't been finalised, but hopefully the lads will continue to play their lovely running brand of rugby in that semi-final and secure a spot in the final, which anyone who has watched them would agree would be well-deserved. In the interim, they kickoff their cup campaign away to Suttonians next Sunday (KO 12.30pm)....well worth a visit for anyone suffering from Six Nations withdrawal next weekend!

Finally, on an unfortunate note, the 18.5s smashing out half Adam Nealon (who represented Leinster this season, and who was playing superbly for the club) suffered a season-ending shoulder injury late in the Barnhall game. The good news is that Adam has had a successful operation and is already heading into his rehab period - and the prognosis is that he will be back (even better!!) in plenty of time for next season. Everyone in Salmo wishes Adam a full and speedy recovery - looking forward to seeing him in the club colours again in September!!
