The beautiful thing about the future is your state of ignorance – you just don’t know what’s going to happen. We’ve been kicking bored footballs about and hitting inanimate bags for the last few weeks. Training can sometimes be a synthetic affair but it whets the appetite for the real deal.
The whistle blew for the start of our seasons today with visitors Roscrea providing opposition for our JCT and for a selection of our 15’s. The 15’s stole a march on their older brothers kicking off five minutes earlier and racing into a quick lead with a well worked try in which the backs and forwards combined seamlessly. This set the tone for the rest of the half with the lads picking up from where they left off last season with some scintillating, mesmeric rugby.
