The Rebels (Roscrea/Birr) under 16s played Longford in the Leinster Shield final on Sunday in Longford. This was a very big occasion for The Rebels.
It was a very hard fought contest. Longford were the bigger side by far but this did not dishearten the Rebels. The Rebels scored a super pushover try to take the lead. The Rebels looked dangerous every time they moved the ball. Josh Tynan put in an outstanding performance at full back for the Rebels.
The Rebels stayed in front up to the last 15 minutes. Longford came into the game with some late scores that enabled them to win by game on the final score of Rebels (Roscrea/Birr) 5 Longford 17.
The Roscrea under 13s played at home to Garryowen. Roscrea are in the Leinster Cup semi-final in the coming weeks against Mullingar and needed a tough game to prepare them. Garryowen did not disappoint.
It was a battle up front with the forwards which Roscrea won. The Roscrea forwards gave their backs a great platform to work off and the backs moved the ball well and looked like scoring every time they moved the ball.
Final Score Rocrea 35 Garryowen 14.
