Great Start to Season for Sligo Under 15's

Two wins for Sligo Under 15 Rugby Team confirmed their place as one of the leading teams in Connacht.

In the first game they defeated a good Monivea side 19- 7 and travelled to Ballina last weekend to defeat them convinsingly – 33-7. A significant number of under 15’s also helped the under 16’s to a significant win over Creggs last Sunday.

This team has been together through the juvenile section and each year gets new recruits enjoying the spirit and friendship within the team. This year we welcome Paul Snee from Ballinafad and Guilio Schinaia from Rome.

In both games the skill levels were of the highest standard, the fitness levels for early season were excellant showing the lads commitment to healthy eating and exercise. Many combine gaelic games during the summer and rugby during the winter and it shows in the fitness and ball handling skills. No couch potatoes here. Discipline is also excellant , hardly any penalties were given in the two games. We look forward to a good season !!!
