Sligo U10s competed in the Aviva blitz hosted by Corinthians on Saturday. Sligo RFC were well-represented with two panels and a total of 28 players. Our teams played Corinthians, Galwegians, Buccaneers, Creggs, Ballina, Ballinasloe, Oughterard & Gort. All games ended in a draw (minis rules!) but both teams acquitted themselves very well and matched anything they came up against. Well done to all the players, coaches & parents involved
With many fixtures having been cancelled over the weekend due to adverse weather conditions, it was left to the girls to represent Sligo RFC in Hamilton Park last Saturday.
The U-13 girls hosted a regional blitz, and despite the bitterly cold conditions, gave a warm welcome to teams from Ballina, Gort and Claremorris. Team managers Michael Cox and Gavin Clinch were happy with the great running play by the Sligo girls, and the dominance they showed in many areas of the field.
Coach Gabriel Gormley praised his team, saying that they improved with each game, their fitness and hard work at training really showed as the tournament progressed.
Girls rugby training, ages 8 to 15, continues every Saturday morning at 10a.m. in Sligo RFC and on Tuesday evenings at 6.30p.m. Anyone interested in joining should contact Gabriel Gormley (087 7636168)
