Rugby Leinster Schools’ Senior Cup – Final Results
Leinster Schools’ Senior Cup Final
|BLACKROCK COLLEGE S.C.T.
We commiserate with Captain Cian Reilly (6th Year) and his squad in this Senior Cup Final match.
Life is a matter of inches and it was that close; tantalising but not to be. It was an incredible contest with no quarter asked or given.
Belvedere scored 10 points with the wind. We managed 3. It was that simple.
Both squads gave their all and battled to the end. The wind made it difficult to play open rugby. Handling was challenging, errors on both sides were inevitable.
They were two excellent sides and we congratulate Belvedere on their win.
I thank our senior squad and their families for their phenomenal commitment. I thank Matthew Barry and our cheerleaders on their outstanding support. I thank our games administrator, catering, household and grounds staff for the logistics which happen largely behind the scenes. Finally I thank our coaches Mr Vanstone, Mr Lambe, Mr Murray, Mr Pickering, Mr Toomey, Mr Moore and Charlie Rock (Class of 2013); our medical team of Ms Fitzgerald, Ms Carr and Dr. McShane for their care for the squad.
