A record 62 teams in the 2018/19 Top Oil Connacht Schools Cups draw
The draw took place last Saturday in the Heineken Rugby Clubhouse at The Sportsground, prior to Connacht’s 33-12 win over Dragons and included the largest ever number of competing teams in the competitions.
In the Senior Cup, Summerhill College find themselves in the very tough Pool 1, with reigning champions Garbally, alongside Colaiste Iognaid, the team they beat in last year’s decider. Sligo Grammar are in Pool 2 with the Marist College and Roscommon CBS.
It’s a different story in the Junior A Cup, as both Sligo schools are in Pool 1, alongside defending champions Marist College and Colaiste Iognaid. Pool 2 will contain Garbally, CBS Roscommon, St Muiredachs and The Bish. Best of luck to Sligo Grammar School and Summerhill College from all in Sligo RFC.
The opening pool games taking place on Wednesday 16th January. Further pool games on Wednesday 23rd and Wednesday 30th January will determine who will go on to the knockout stages.
