Wonderful Thirteens

Leinster League Premier Division Under 13 Quarter Final.

Wexford Wanderers ....59 Naas ....7

Wexford Wanderers proved too strong for Naas in this eagerly awaited Quarter Final clash. From the kick off Wexford started strongly and recycled possession before sending the ball to their slick back line where Ian Bennett at outside centre broke through the Naas defense to score a try converted by Rory o Connor who kicked at impressive 7 out of 9 kicks at the posts. However it was early stages and Naas were well in contention. In fact Wexford were knocked back by tough rucking from Naas who worked their way into their opponents 22. Following heavy pressure Naas broke through to score a great try through their 1st centre. Such was their confidence that the conversion was scored by a drop goal. It had the appearance of a tight game at this point. Wexford again worked the ball to their midfield with a hook against the head in the scrum and Ian Bennett was again through to score. 12 points to 7 in favor of Wexford. Wexford went up a gear at this stage at camped in their opponents half. They were dominating the line out with great work especially from Ben Moore. Naas tried to clear from deep inside their 22 but quick thinking from Rory o Connor who took a quick line out finding captain Peter Barry on hand to counter attack. With support from Conor Coleman the move was finished superbly by Finn o Driscoll. The score now was up to 19 points to 7. Two more tries one from scrum half Alex Ryan were to follow leaving Wexford comfortable by half time.

Eight Minutes into the 2nd half Peter Barry scored a further try to add to Naas’s misery. As a contest it was effectively over by now. Further tries followed from Barry o Connor and Ian Bennett. This was a hugely impressive victory for Wexford. The final score was 9 tries to the home team, who played a quality of rugby beyond their years. The most impressive aspect was their team play and ability to off load.

They now advance to the Leinster semi final of the premier division where Carlow will be their opponents. If this level of performance can be re produced it’s a game not to be missed.

Wexford: Tony Boggan, Cian Kelly, Josh Christe, Vincent Carroll, Ben Moore, Conor Firman, Luke McRedmond, David Doyle, Alex Ryan, Barry o Connor, Peter Barry, Ian Bennett, Finn o Driscoll, Rory o Connor, Conor Coleman. Replacements: Richard Ryan, Daniel o Regan, Eoghan o Brien, Callum Murphy, Cillian Deane, Stephen Doyle, Ben Powell, Eanna Cleary, Stephen o Donohue,

U.14's draw with Kilkenny

There was an air of anticipation as our 'arch enemy ' of last year were in town. Wounds were still raw and a large crowd was in attendance.
Kilkenny were first out of the traps and pushed Wexford deep into their own play and they were 0 - 7 up. More pressure ensued and another hammering looked on, but as they say, ''when the going gets tough the tough get going'; Greg McGrath lead by example and slowly but surely they repelled the Kilkenny hoards .The scrum started going forward, and the line - out started winning good ball. Wexford crossed half way with a great move started by Ciaran Kirwan , a quick pass to Connor Halligan who moved it on to Matt Doyle , down the line to Stephen Lyne -- a step inside, a pop pass to Kevin Mahoney and he was away. Try, score 7 7 at half time.
Wexford started to believe in themselves; the 2nd half started at a blistering pace, both teams surging forward ,both defences well on top the tackle counts were high.Then Kilkenny moved it wide to score in the corner and convert 7 - 14.
Wexford heads did not go down; Wanderers rucked hard and created their own luck. Ben O 'Shea passed out wide to Kevin Mahoney who some how beat 4 men to score under the posts -- score 14 14
Kilkenny threw everything at Wexford but out defence held resolute; it was amazing that they didnt concede a penalty,great disipline ;well done lads. final score 14 - 14

U.14's trash Wicklow

Wexford Wanderers 52 Wicklow 24
This match was played in glorious conditions last Sat, Wexford having drawn against the U15's and trashing Portlaoise, in their previous outings, were looking forward to this one.
The forwards lead the way in this one. The scrum was solid with the addition of Greg McGrath and the back row were rampant and No.8 Ciaran Kirwan went under the posts after 3 mins. Soon after Greg McGrath scored a pushover try.More good forward play and Ciaran Kirwan was in again.
Wicklow finally managed to move the ball wide and their full back scored in the corner .Open side flanker Conor Halligan then added his name to the score board . Wexford drove forward again and tight head Greg McGrath got the ball on half way and 'handed off 'thrice to score the try of the day.Outhalf Matt Doyle was in brilliant form, (especially his right foot). The score at half time was 33 - 5
Conor Halligan started off as we have finished the 1st half with a great run culminating in his second try of the day..Wicklow responded immediately-- that full back again. Scrum-half Ben O'Shea spotted a gap and made it 38 -10. Wicklow made some changes and pushed Wanderers back ;twice they were held up . They eventually scored a converted try.
Wexford now rung the changes , and 2nd centre Luke Lacey scored after a fine passing move .Wicklow weren't finished and scored the final try of the day to leave the final score 52 - 24
Well done lads still more to do.

U.13's defeat Wicklow

Wexford 14 Wicklow 7

The Under 13’s continued their unbeaten run this season with a hard fought but thoroughly deserved encounter with neighbours Wicklow on Sunday 7thNovember.

Have met earlier in the season Wexford were firm favorites for this game however it was much improved Wicklow team to the one which threw in the towel resulting in a 62 to Nil win for Wexford in Septembers match.

Wicklow started the stonger and enjoyed some early territorial advantage. By the 12thMinute wexford had not managed to get into their opponents half. Despite wicklows ball retention they never looked like breaching a firm wexford defense which was finally getting a resounding test. Against the run of play wexford turned over possession and stuck from inside their own half with a strong break by Ian Bennett who scored the opening try under the posts. Barry o Connor converted to leave the home team 7–0 ahead. Before the break wexford struck again with Ian Bennett again finishing powerfully under the posts to leave wexford 14– 0 ahead at the break.

Wexford perhaps flattered by the half time score line but full credit to their resolute defense which never looked like creaking during the opening half.

In the second half it was wexford who gained the upper hand in terms of territory – but like the 1st half it was a break away long range strike from the visitors who touched down to leave the game poised at 14 points to 7. Wexford certainly knew they were in a game now and upper the tempo in what was a tough physical encounter. Wexford were denied a try by the corner flag. The forwards were finally getting on top in the latter stages but perhaps some suspect decision making when possible overlaps were created prevented a decisive score. The game finished in the Wicklow half. Food for though for this wexford team. Wexford showed the greater character and resolve to claim the win which now secures a quarter final spot in the Leinster League.

Man of the Match Ian Bennett.
