Cill Dara 15 Newbridge 13
On Sunday 19th November Newbridge 2nd XV travelled to near neighbours Cill Dara in the Quarter Finals of the North Midland Area Lalor Cup (J2). The visitors will wonder how they lost this match when a penalty kick from in front of the posts, in the last minute of the game, was driven wide. Cill Dara won with 3 tries to Newbridge’s 2 tries and a penalty kick. Newbridge lead this game on two occasions but each time Cill Dara pegged them back but only took the lead in the 76th minute. Newbridge still had two opportunities to win but were unable to take them and so loose out to Cill Dara for the second time this season, A real case of "would, could, should"!
On Sunday 26th November Newbridge welcome current Leinster League leaders Co Carlow to Rosetown. The visitors lead both Division 2A and Division 2A Seconds. Co Carlow 1st XV have 5 wins and one draw from their league matches to date. This is a MUST WIN match for Newbridge if they want to keep league success and promotion alive. However it will be a tough ask against high flying Co Carlow. Your support in Rosetown will be much appreciated. The 2nd XV match kicks off at 1.00pm and the 1st XV follows at 2.30pm.
There was a great win for Patrician Secondary School Newbridge JCT/Under 16s against Presentation De La Salle Bagnealstown in the Pat Rossiter Leinster Junior Development Cup. The match was played in Carlow RFC on Wednesday 15th November. The PSS team is filled with players from Newbridge and Cill Dara RFC's. PSS Newbridge won by 37 pts to -17. Their performance was built on a huge team effort, 'simple things done well', combined with incisive attacking play. Credit goes to Bagnealstown for an aggressive and committed challenge which asked loads of questions of the PSS players. All of the PSS team faced the challenge with purpose and collective determination. The PSS Newbridge squad is pictured below with Pres DLS (Red) after the game. Well done to all involved, Players, Coaches and Staff.
