Mayfield Community School broke new ground by participating in the Munster rugby emerging schools competition held recently in Ballincollig RFC. Mayfield boys were not found wanting in what was an extremely demanding and competitive group.
First up was Deerpark, Mayfield’s backs were very much to the fore led by Connor Morrissey charges. Despite relentless pressure on the Deerpark tryline, Mayfield went down at the death to a break out try by Deerpark, final score was 7 points to 5 in Deerparks favour. Next up was an extremely strong Ballincollig Community School but Mayfield again were not found wanting in what was an extremely abrasive encounter.
Mayfield finished the day on a high by putting Cobh to the sword 10 points to 0 to finish out the competition in a very positive manner. To a man Mayfield were exemplary both on and off the pitch with many complementing them on their skill set and attacking brand of running. It would be remiss not to mention John Murphy, Sam Brickley and Conor Morrissey for the first up tackling and intensity they and their teammates brought to each game, this bodes well for the future.
Mayfield will continue to train every Tuesday after school in conjunction with UCC and Munster rugby, all are welcome
