J1 Clanwilliam V Bandon
Sunday 1st December 2013For
their seventh league game, Bandon made the long way to Tipperary, to
play Clanwilliam in great rugby conditions being dry and virtually no
wind.Bandon took on a
bigger, stronger and more experienced Clonwilliam team and were first
off the mark when they took the lead through a Richard Walsh penalty
only to concede a penalty a few minutes later which was converted to
make it 3-3. Clanwilliam went on to score a converted try leaving it
10-3 at the break.In
the second half, both teams had their chances with both teams scoring
penalties making it 13-6. Bandon looked more threatening and put a lot
of pressure on the home defence. Bandon did get over the line with JP
Lucey but was deemed to have been held up
and was awarded a five metre scrum. After another strong scrum which
Bandon broke off the back, Jack Murphy went over the line to score the
only try of the half which was duly converted by Richard Walsh to tie
the game at 13-13 with 5 minutes to go. Poor discipline cost Bandon
dearly and gave Clanwilliam two attempts at the post of which the second
was converted, meaning Bandon had to settle for the losing bonus point.
Next up for Bandon is Castleisland at home in Old Chapel, which will be played under lights on Saturday 14th December at 630pm.Bandon

Bandon travelled to The Farm, Curaheen Road to
take on UCC and emerged with a bonus point victory. On a still day and on an excellent playing
surface Bandon started strongly but several breaks yielded nothing owing
principally to lack of support. The
visitors were first on the score sheet when a number of surges from the pack
saw the ball eventually fed out the line where full back Pat Prendergast got
through a gap to score. Olann Crowley
added the conversion. UCC were dangerous
on the front foot with a number of good ball players in their backline. They had a chance to reduce the deficit with
a penalty but the shot at goal was off target.
However they were applying plenty of pressure and this eventually told
when they cut through the Bandon defence out wide for a try. The conversion levelled the score. Bandon tightened up their game somewhat after
this, using their maul in particular to good effect. This allowed them to gain large periods of
territorial dominance and two further tries followed before the break from Eoin
Verling and Ross Bateman who had earlier been denied a perfectly good score for
an alleged double movement. Crowley converted both to
leave it 21-07 at the break.
With the bonus point in sight Bandon
started the second period in determined fashion. A good break from Giles Murphy was followed
up by a couple of quick pick and drives before Scott Kingston powered over the
line. Again Crowley converted. A fifth try followed by Giles Murphy before
Bandon disappointingly conceded a soft try which was converted from out wide to
make it 35-14 with fifteen to go. In
fairness Bandon once again upped their game in the closing stages and two well
taken tries on either flank by wingers Rob Wilmot and Liam Dempsey completed
the scoring. Bandon’s final game in this
section is against Clonakilty on the 15th December. Kick off 2:30. Other fixtures for that weekend include the
J1s who are at home to Castleisland in the league on Saturday 14th
