Under Age Weekly Update December 11th 2015

Hello folks,

Once again, the weather (namely Storm “Desmond”) played havoc with our fixtures last week-end and the forecast for the next few days is none too promising, so please check with Coaches to verify if matches or training is going ahead on Sunday.

Under 18 Pan Munster – Bruff vs Young Munster – Bruff at 12 noon – Lost 17-0

Coaches Skills Sessions – Monday 14th December – CANCELLED – unfortunately, as Fiach O’Loughlin will be out of the country next week, we have had to defer the session which we had planned to go ahead on next Monday. Apologies for this, but we hope to re-schedule in January. However, there will be a “Line Out” Session hosted by Munster Rugby, with guest Peter Malone at LIT on next Wednesday 16th December from 6 to 7. If you are interested, please let me know as although the session is free of charge, they would like to have some indication of numbers attending in advance.

Yours in rugby,
