Newbridge Under 14 Girls have combined for the season with Cill Dara and on Saturday 14th October 'New Dara' played their first League match against Portlaoise. There was a lot of great play from the newly formed Under 14 Girls Team. They faced a strong well organised Portlaoise side and they did really well and actually came out best in the second half. Portlaoise eventually won by 30pts to 17. The 'New Dara' girls are only just starting to train and play together, so there is better to come. Well Done to all involved in the team.

Newbridge Under 13s took the road West on Saturday morning, 14th October, to play a friendly fixture in near perfect conditions against Galwegians RFC in Crowley Park, Glenina. They put in a huge effort in a very positive performance with daring attack and aggressive defence on show. Both sides tried to keep the ball in play with Newbridge coming out on top in a game which put all that is good about juvenile rugby on display. Thanks to Don and all in Galwegians RFC for their impeccable hospitality, the kicking competition and for hosting us for both the game and snacks and treats post match in the clubhouse.

In the third round of matches in Leinster League Divisuon 2A Newbridge secured two wins against Mullingar. Played in Rosetown under lights on Saturday 14th October Newbridge 1st XV defeated Mullingat by 16 pts to 14. There was a thrilling finish to this match with Mullingar taking the lead in the 80th minute with a well taken converted try. Trailing by a point Newbridge rallied and a confidently struck penalty from the influential Karl Darragh put the home side back in front. then in the closing minute Newbridge conceded a penalty wide out just inside the Mullingar half.
