Rock - Div 2 Report 2018/2019
With our promotion to Div 2 after a narrow final loss to Wanderers the season before we felt that we needed to bulk up the coaching ticket. After a number of interviews we finally came to the decision to bring Mark O’Brien (Mobster) into the fold as forwards coach.
This proved a decisive move as we beat Landsdowne and Wanderers in the first two games of the season before losing to Clontarf. We bounced back with wins over Mary’s and Old Wesley before a hungover loss to Landsdowne away before the Christmas break.
A loss to Greystones in the New Year put us on the backfoot but we knew a win against Barnhall and Wesley would get us to the final which it did.
We left it all out there in final against Wesley in Donnybrook but they proved too strong in the second half and got their first win over us in the season. Three finals in three different divisions in three years is still and will remain a great achievement!
