Dispatches From Malone RFC’s Second Week

Dispatches From Malone RFC’s Second Week

Malone is now in its second week of Bud Light Tag. This great club has been providing the setting for many an exciting match indeed. Read on for what Claire McAteer, venue manager at Malone, describes of the proceedings so far.

With only 2 weeks played B1 is heating up with 3 teams scoring in excess of 30 points. Already we are all waiting in anticipation for these teams to play against each other.

Following Hands Like Feet win over City Slickers you will be sure to see the City Slickers practicing this weekend. Pass it to Cuddy bounced back from last weeks defeat with a comprehensive victory against Mighty Ducks. Newcomers Carson McDowell Solicitors put up a good argument against Deep Heat but lost.

Given early performances I think the game to watch next week is NFU vs. Pass it to Cuddy. Both have one win under their belts and very similar defensive records.

Unfortunately neither The Carnivores nor The Tryers could build on their opening night winning ways. The Carnivores were defeated by just 2 points but Taggin Tigers while The Tropics beat The Tryers. Both Scott Wilson Wolves and The Titans now have a win under their belts at the expense of 10 out of 10 for effort and Silver Foxes respectively.
Quinns Ladies, Goldblatt McGuigan and Northern Ireland Water all made it two wins out of two. Elsewhere in the league The Crew played out another draw, if I’m not mistaken they now have more points after two weeks than they got in the league last season. All that practice is paying off.
Newly formed Wolf pack continued their winning ways as did the experienced PwC team, they also welcomed back Judith Whylie this season following the birth of her twin boys last summer. The Stranmillis Stingrays were beaten this week again by just 2 points.
Unfortunately Thursday night saw a dramatic turn in the weather and the rain we grew so accustomed to last season arrived. Games continued however those playing at 2030 needed flippers instead of boots by the end of the game.
Mengal Tigers, last year’s defending A league champions got their season back on track with a win against DJC Rugby. Transformers had the narrowest of victories at the expense of Rollo Pollo Rustlers while The Pumas continued their winning ways this week at the expense of The Flying Squad. The team making the biggest impression after week 2 is Knipeys Knashers a win for the new team against Mooseknuckles is definitely a feather in their caps.
The B1 league unfortunately had to play in horrendous conditions however defences stood tall and all games were very closely contested with wins going to Energia Killwewatts, Corinthians, Tubbies Revenge and Racing Club de Belfast.
So far so good for the Power Rangers this season with two wins and only 19 points conceded. Having just won by a point last week the Ulster Wizards were on the receiving end of the narrow defeat this week at the hands of Tag-A-Roos. Only Tagging and Racing Club de Carrick were too strong for Angry Pirates and The Jocksons.
Glad to see Phoenix Knights  won their second ever tag match, clearly the office don’t have much patience when there was talk after just one week of the manager Ryan loosing his job. That would have been harsh. City Churchclearly missed their captain last week, he returned for week 2 and they won the team are hoping Chris is available until the end of the season. Other results went the way of Bright Sparks and Too Big To Fail with both teams winning two matches out of two.
