There are two new winning clubs to add to the Energia All-Ireland League Try Of The Month list for the 2020/2021 season.
Nenagh Ormond get the nod for the first time ever after their efforts in an all-Tipperary clash in Division 2A of the Energia All-Ireland League. Fionn McGibney’s outrageous cross-field kick against Cashel was collected and finished by Conor O’Brien.
Conditions were inclement in many of February’s games, but that didn’t stop teams like Old Belvedere from putting on a show. Nichola Fryday’s try against Suttonians was a brilliant example of how to keep the ball alive with pace in difficult conditions.

February 2020: Energia All-Ireland League Try Of The Month – Conor O’Brien
€250 goes to both with thanks to Energia – the official energy partner to Irish Rugby. The winning tries are then eligible to win the Try of The Season award.
