1st XV 54 - 12 Malahide

 

Coolmine’s firsts finished off the year with another win this time in cup action against Malahide.  The victory has secured them a place in the final of the Spencer Cup a title that has eluded them in last few years.  It was a cold night but the surface held up well not freezing until well after the game had finished.  It was a comfortable victory for the home side in the end running in eight tries altogether thanks to among others Rob Savage and Alan Cousins.  Coolmine led from the start and were 14 nil up after the first 10 minutes and went into the break at 33-5.  They continued to dominate the second half running the ball at every opportunity.  Eoin Carbury stepped in at out half for an injured Donal Crotty and managed to convert seven out of eight kicks.  The home side were 54-12 at the final whistle and will be keen to see who their opponents are in the upcoming final next year a first opportunity to secure some silverware this season.  Both players and supporters retired to the clubhouse for some well deserved Christmas drinks and food.  Coolmines seconds Byrne Cup semi final against Stillorgan was cancelled and will be rescheduled for the New Year.  Competitive action has now finished for the Christmas break.  Coolmines 1st and 2nd XV will face local rivals Garda RFC on the 7th of January.  Our under 21’s will take on Castleknock College next Weds at Ashbrook in a bid to win back the Eddie Melvin Trophy.  Kick Off is at 7pm.
