The Irish Rugby Supporters Club is delighted to announce that tickets for the GUINNESS Series 2013 will go on sale on ticketmaster.ie at 10am on Thursday, May 30.
The Intergroup game between O2 and Maple Lions was the subject of some early attempts to bribe the Venue Manager but when it was explained that no points were at stake they just got down to playing.
The two Vets leagues were evenly matched with some tight score lines and a couple of draws - including perennial rivals Lansdowne Legends and Vintage Rock - which should make calculating the end of season positions fun!
There wasn't even an eyelid batted when it turned out that one of the two Greystones teams (Seagulls and Hawks) were filming the other ahead of their clash next week. It was felt that the camera man would never get the video off his mobile in time to do the analysis.
The second Intergroup friendly of the night saw the Hurricanes from our Vets league take on The Swifties from our Mixed Social in Belvo's very own version of Compromise Rules.
The final round of games saw a replay of last season's C1 Mixed Social Final as Slatterys took on Hoof Hearted. There was only a matter of points between them last season in two games and so it transpired again this season as Slattery's won on the whistle by 13 - 12. The Titans and The Tagables also picked up wins on the night.
The post match discussions in the bar centred on future theme nights with a number of Vets appearing very keen on a Mamma Mia night! Watch This Space.
Thanks to all the teams and to our dedicated referees on the night - Tom, Robert, Aoife, Simon, Gary, Paul and Eamonn.
