Fethard RFC seniors faced Kilfeacle on Saturday evening last in the Gleeson League.

It was a game that could have gone either way but Fethard won 12-9, with Declan Doyle landing four penalties for the Fethard side.

The game was a very even contest with Fethard dominating the line out with Nicko Hoynes doing very well. Chris Large, just back from injury, carried a lot of ball and was well assisted by Kieran Power and Kevin Pollard. John Ryan, William Power and Shane Kavanagh were very solid in the backs. We are away to Garryowen on Saturday at 2.30pm, which turns out to be a top of table battle and a very important game for Fethard.

Fethard U16s played Kilfeacle at home on Sunday morning as both teams prepare for their Pan Munster games coming up over the next few weeks.

Conditions were less than ideal but both teams put in a great effort in a game that ended 17-all.

Andrew O’Connell was first to score and Michael Gaynor and Bill Phelan followed up with tries. Jake Murphy, Ned Grogan and Jack Grace were others to perform well on the day.
