Match Report: 1sts v Tullamore

Rock miss fire in a well earned win over Tullamore in Spollanstown. The first try came from Paul Cullen. Started from a line out and a subsequent break down on the 5 meter, Cullen crashed over with some hard running. Converted by out half Peter Quirke. 7 - 0 Shortly after Tullamore made a similar drive from a line out of their own, following a kick to touch from penalty for “not releasing" in the centre of the park.

Match Report: 1st v Wanderers

Friday night faulty lights as Wanderers edge out Rock in a very close game. In a game where the Rock scrum and line out fired quite well, and the possession stacked heavily in their favour, the finishing touch remained illusive. Rock started slow and were quickly punished from a missed tackle in the line of defence. Converted, Wanderers went 7-0 up. A penalty shortly after from out half Peter Quirke brought it to 7-3. More pressure from Wanderers and Rock conceded again! But failed to convert. 12-3 With 8 minutes to half time, the Friday night lights failed. A welcomed break for Rock, as they looking like a different team when they restarted. After some very hard running from Hugo Godson Tra
