Rainey III XV 33-10 Coleraine III XV
Rainey IIIXV picked up another two points away to Coleraine in a high tempo game, played in wet and windy conditions. With Rainey struggling to find a front row before the game they let Coleraine dominate opening proceedings, several last ditch tackles keeping their rivals out. They eventually succumbed to pressure and conceded a try, with the resulting conversion being missed.
This jolted Rainey into gear and some excellent handling by K.Irvine and P.Kidd helped M.Donnelly to skip down the wing to touch down under the posts. Rainey pushed on and began playing all the rugby, going close several times, handling in the wet letting then down on occasion. Just before half time a pass down the blindside on the C’raine 22’ by C.Magee to I.Patterson allowed him to send Man of the Match, A.Davis, in at the corner.
Coleraine hit back with another try at the start of the second half to make it 12-10. However the half belong to Rainey as their backs ran riot, C.Moran and D.Andrews offloading well to send M.Donnelly over for his second. Flanker M.Montgomery steamroller over a few would be tacklers to claim a try for the the forwards with 15 minutes left. A.Campbell scored his fourth try in two games to seal the win, K.Irvine kicking the touchline conversion.
Rainey now have a 2 week lay off with their next game against Academy II’s at Hatrick Park.
