Naas Rugby(Naas RFC)
Naas Achieve Magnificent Double in Carlow winning the 2nds Provincial Towns Cup and Anderson Cup. A superb season continued for Naas last Sunday with appearances in two cup finals. Despite wet and windy conditions a decent crowd turned up for both games which were played in Carlow. First up was the Seconds Towns Cup Final in which Naas faced Tullow. Naas had the advantage of the strong breeze in the first half but it took them until the 15th minute to open the scoring. Tullow were penalised for hands in a ruck and David Ging tapped over the penalty in front of the posts. Within five minutes Tullow responded, when a fine cross field kick was caught by their big second row who crashed over in the corner. The lead changed hands again on 26 minutes. Following a fine break by Emmett Harney, some slick handling by the Naas backs quickly moved the ball out to Cormac Sheridan who scored in the corner. A fine conversion by Ging put Naas 10-5 in front, and with both sides missing another penalty chance each this turned out to be the half-time score. With the wind at their backs Tullow dominated the early stages of the second half. They made this dominance pay when 12 minutes into the half they reduced the margin with a penalty, which also saw Brian Fitzgerald sent to the bin for Naas. Tullow threw everything at Naas for the next 25 minutes but some marvellous defence held them at bay. In the final five minutes Naas worked their way up the pitch and following a series of pick and drives Michael Russell forced his way over to guarantee success for Naas. There was no time for Tullow to respond and Naas were champions on a 15-8 scoreline. Naas: Kevin McLoughlin, Oisin Tyrrell, Brian Fitzgerald, Emmett Harney, Fionan Leahy, David Ging, Michael Barton, Conor Sheridan, Bryan Gallagher, Brian Dempsey, Brian Phelan, Barney Kavanagh, Cormac Sheridan, Michael Russell, Gearoid Comber. Replacements: Evan Coyle, Niall Gorry, John Waters, Ray Fullam, Luke Smith. Next up was the Anderson Cup Final against Gorey and within two minutes Naas were in front with a Paddy Brickell penalty. It was all Naas in the early stages but it took them until the 24th minute to increase the advantage. A fine break by Eoin Tierney took play up to the Gorey line and Paddy Brickell was on hand to take the pass and score. Although the conversion was missed Naas led by eight points and it was no more than they deserved. Then on 32 minutes Gorey were penalised at a scrum and Brickell extended the lead with the succesful penalty. Gorey responded with a penalty of their own just before half-time to leave the score 11-3 at the break. Conditions got worse in the second half making handling conditions very difficult for the players. However Naas were still the dominant side and they took another giant step towards victory with 15 minutes left. Following good drives by Jared Owens and Luke Smith, the ball was recycled to Paddy McKeon who dived over for the try. The conversion by Brickell was successful and Naas led by 15. To their credit Gorey never stopped trying but they could make no inroads into the deficit and Naas were deserving winners on a 18-3 scoreline. So a big cup double for Naas, putting the cap on a tremendous season for the club. Naas: Paddy Brickell, Luke Smith, David Murphy, Sean Dennison, Eamonn Moran, Jonny Mullen, Neil Casey, Paddy McKeon, Sean Nolan, Eoin Tierney, Will Richards, Stuart O'Rourke, Jared Owens, Bearaigh O'Halloran, Evan Coyle. Replacements: Austin Doyle, Ronan Cadogan, John Waters, Andrew Kelly, Ruairi Cleary.
