Junior Rugby Duff Cup
Leinster Schools Rugby Duff Cup – Rd.2
Wexford CBS…….33 Sandford Park……0
Our JCT squad put in a fine display of rugby in horrendous conditions at Park Lane, Wexford to crush Sandford Park in their Rd. 2 Duff Cup game. They performed exceptionally well in the conditions as they moved the ball with great precision and skill in attack after attack. This was rewarded in the first half with tries from Cian Connolly and Emmet Nolan. Conversions we added by Ruairi Fenlon. The second half got of to a great start with Eoin Foley and Eoin McBride adding further tries early on. This platform was built upon with the clever box kicking and pick and go driving, kept the Bokerboys deep in the oppositions territory. Eoin McBride capped a great performance with a second try. Three more conversions were added by Ruairi Fenlon and Emmet Nolan.
A great win indeed. We now await DLS Churchtown or GC New Ross in the Q-Final.
Team: Eoin McBride, Darragh Byrne, Tomas O’Keeffe, Cian Connolly, Jake Giltrap, Morgan Lawernce, Jack Freeman, Eoin Foley, Ruairi Fenlon, Shane McGuinness, Cian Doherty, Emmet Nolan, Paul Freeman, Nathen Barron , Conor Brennan, Kyle Lewis.

Michael Lalor, Kevin Bierney and Chris Vickery all added firther tries before half-time. Kevin Bierney kicked another two conversions to make it 26-0 at the break.
Wexford have a big strong team, with lots of players always available to carry the ball. This pressure took its toll on the Bridgetown defense and a further two tries from Callum Murphy and one from Chris Vickery were more than enough to account for the opposition. Kevin Bierney again kickedall three conversions to bring his tally to 17.
Well done to all, keep showing up at training and keep learning. There is lots of room for improvement.

First Year Rugby Blitz:
A blitz was held for Wexford schools in Wexford rugby club on 30 / 03 / 12. CBS participated along with teams from Good Council, New Ross, Gorey Community College, Wexford Tech and Kilmuckarige Tech.
Our lads were placed in a group with the three former teams. None of our lads had played before and had only been introduced to full contact rugby last week. We started slowly with hard fought match against a skilful and experienced Good Council team. Like all CBS teams the lads got stuck in and matched fire with fire. Aaron Carley crossed for a five pointer that was converter expertly by Paul Bailey Kehoe. We eventually were the wrong side of a 14 – 7 score line.
Next up was the Wexford Tech. The lads flew out of the blocks. They dominated every aspect of the game. In an incredible performance of skill, strength and courage the lads won 14 – 0. Paul Bailey Kehoe top scored with a try and two conversions. The match will be remembered for many years in the annals of CBS rugby for a try scored by Matthew Creane. The ball flashed out the back line. Matthew took the ball in full flight and with a burst of acceleration never before seen at this level in Wexford ran in a try from half way. Eat your heart out Ussain Bolt!!!!!!
The final match was against Gorey. There was the extra ingredient here in that Mr. Frank Duke, the former principal of CBS, managed the opposition. This was our first taste of the main pitch. Again we played excellently well. In an exciting
14 – 14 draw Adam Baziz and Chihun Lee scored two excellent tries. Both were converted.
The team was captained by Isaac Doyle and Everett Johnson was nominated our player of the tournament.
A great day was had by all. Thanks to Ms. Henneberry for her advice on the side line, to John, Chris, Joe and Kevin (see second year notes) for their help. Thanks to Maurice and all in Wexford Rugby for a well organised event. Great credit goes to the playing panel, most of who were representing the school for the first time. They represented the school with honour and exceptional manners both on and off the pitch. It gave me great pride to travel away from the school with such a fine bunch of chaps. Well done.
The panel: Shane Pierce, Lee Whelan, Everett Johnson, Jason Dilworth, Aaron Carley, Dylan Ennis, Mark Doyle, Chihun Lee, Kean Kehoe, David Ngugi, Micheal Lalor, Kevin Corrigan, Manco Fleck, Nathan Furlong, Matthew Creane, Paul Bailey Kehoe, Adam Baziz, Ryan Byrne, Rokas Baika, Josh Byrne, Isaac Doyle (team captain) and David Kavanagh.

Well done to our Junior rugby team who began their cup campaign today away to Wicklow school, Coláiste Cill Mhaintain. While there is only a few experienced players in this squad it was very heartening to watch the committment and determination of this new squad of players. Falling behind to a try after 22 mins, Wexford responded immediately. Following good running by David Tormey and Alex Perez, captain Conor Fenlon was on had to finish off the move with a well taken try. Ciaran Kirwin kicked the conversion.
Again from the restart Wexford attacked, this time Jason Guerrine charged forward and set up a perfect ruck, the ball was moved by Stephen Healy to David Tormey who touched down by the posts. Again Kirwin added the points.14-5 at the interval
The Bokerboys dominated the second half and firther tries from David Tormey and Dale Murphy-Butler extended the lead. Ciaran Kirwin kicked another conversion to leave Wexford comprehensive winners 26-5.
A good display but more work to be done during the week as we prepare for Kilkenny C.B.S. in Round 2.

Junior Rugby Super Semi-Final Victory
Wexford C.B.S….55 Hartstown C.S….24
Wexford C.B.S. have reached the Final of this competition for the second year running and now are only 60 mins away from retaining their Leinster title. Wexford started very well with the backline moving the ball at every opportunity. A few chances presented themselves but escaped, then on 11 mins Dale Murphy-Butler broke through to open the scoring. 9 mins later Shaun Donaghue had extended the lead to 10-0. From the restart Joe Coleman took off and ran 60m to score a great try by the posts which he converted. Hatrstown responded in the corner to make it 17-5. Lar Stoutt scored and Joe Coleman converted before they got the final score of the half to make it 24-10 at the break.
The Bokerboys began the second half with great tempo and got further tries from Dale Murphy-Butler and Shaun Donaghue to open up a comfortable lead. This tally was added to by Joe Coleman and Shaun Donaghue who finished off his hatrick with another.Both these were converted by Joe Coleman Alex Perez got the final try to add the gloss to a great team performance. Hartstown got two late scores to finish the scoring.
This was fantastic win and achieved with style, the backline moved very well scoring 6 tries while Joe Coleman had a personal score of 20 points. The front row Jason Guerrine, Alex Perez and Steve Cullen were powerful and were driven forward by the engine room of Donal Moore and Joe Redmond. The back row of Conor Fenlon, Joe Coleman and Lee Dryburg tackled and carried the ball flawlessly all day.
The half backs of Stephen Healy and David Tormey moved the backline effectively producing 6 tries. The centre pairing of Shaun Donaghue and Lar Stoutt is developing nicely and today they were rewarded with tries. Both wingers had their best games today Dale Murphy-Butler finished off moves while Gearoid Finn created well. Eoin McDonald is a rock at full back and his ‘ thou shalt not pass me’ motto is unblemished.
It was great to welcome back Mikey Coleman after a long lay off through injury. Chris Vickery, Johnny Hamilton, Adam Culleton and Eoin Hickey also contributed handsomely when introduced.
Team: Eoin McDonald, Gearoid Finn, Shaun Donaghue, Lar Stoutt, Dale Murphy-Butler, David Tormey, Stephen Healy, Steve Cullen, Alex Perez, Jason Guerrine, Joe Redmond, Donal Moore, Lee Dryburg, Conor Fenlon (Capt.), Joe Coleman

Leinster Junior Rugby Development Shield Final
Wexford were up against a big physical side in todays final and it was their true grit and determination that kept them fighting to the very end. Trailing 20-0 approaching half time Wexford finally got their hands on the ball and captain Conor Fenlon scored a fine try which Joe Coleman converted. These 7 points gave Wexford hope.
The second half began with Wexford in possession and they pounded the line but were unable to breakthrough.
Eventuall Chris Vickery managed to score again Coleman converted and it was game on at 20-14. However Malihide managed the next scored and left Wexford with too big a mountain to climb as time ran out.
As usual Wexford fought with imense conviction and each player gave his all and can live with the belief that it was not to be on this occassion.
