On Friday 28 October 2016, 30 junior rugby players from Sullivan set off for the Kingspan Stadium to watch Ulster take on Munster in their Pro 12 league fixture. After Munster’s tragic loss in recent weeks of Head Coach Axel Foley in which the rugby community have showed fantastic spirit to rally around the Irish province it was sure to be an emotionally charged match. Munster’s never give up attitude saw them strike a late drop goal to win the game 15-14 as both sides played out a tense affair. The Sullivan boys enjoyed the experience even though the result didn’t go the way of the home team.
The U12’s followed their enthusiasm to watch rugby by playing against Wallace on Saturday morning, in what was their second fixture as a group. The result finished equal as both team won 2 out of the 4 matches played. The 1st XV were also in action on Saturday 29th October against St. Munchins College from Limerick, who were on a short tour of Northern Ireland. After a hard fought game St Munchins finished victors as they walked away with a 24 – 12 win after a disappointing 1st half from the home team. Well done to all involved, special thanks must go to Mr Miller, Mr Finlay, Mr Eves and Mr Patterson who facilitated the trip on Friday evening.
