On Saturday last Carrick Minis, Under 8s to Under 12s, travelled to Claremorris RFC for their second last away blitz of the season. Some teams were slightly under strength on a day where conditions were ideal for rugby. This didn’t deter the players that had travelled and they entertained their families and supporters with free flowing rugby.
The Carrick U10s won both their games against the Claremorris 1st and 2nd teams. It was a great effort from all the players, with some excellent teamwork creating a number of outstanding tries. Great improvement from the players as the team lost to Claremorris when they played the home blitz.
On the day Carrick U 11’s fielded 9 Carrick players but these were then supplemented by 3 Dunmore players eager to get some game time. In a game that was very much tit for tat, both sides swapped tries throughout the early exchanges. However in the 3rd quarter Carrick started to dominate the exchanges with direct running and some fierce tackling and rucking. This provided them with the ideal platform to spread the ball wide running some well worked tries in the corner. Well done to all players for such an entertaining game and our thanks to the Dunmore lads for playing with us on the day.
Only six players could make it to Claremorris but the away side were helped with 6 players from Claremorris. It was a great showing from the players with fantastic ball handling, rucking and ball presentation throughout the game.
