Rainey OB notes

IN JUNIOR 4, Rainey O.B. 3rd XV had a good win at Coleraine where they defeated the Sandel Lodge club’s Fourths 33-10. Coleraine scored the first try of a game spoiled by the inclement weather, but Rainey eventually got going to run out comfortable winners. They scored five tries through centre Montgomery, flanker Davis, wing Donnelly 2 and wing Campbell who grabbed the last one.

Out-half Irvine added four conversions.

In Minor South,Rainey 4 drew first blood against Ballynahinch 7 at a wet and windy Hatrick Park with a well-struck penalty from scrum-half Walker, but went down 32-3.Rainey competed well for most of the game, but lacked the finishing power of the winners whose right-wing crossed for three good tries.

Three conversions and two penalties from their out-half gave them a slightly flattering victory margin.

Suffering from a lack of height up front, Rainey were unlucky to come away with nothing when hooker O’Brien broke into the Hinch 22’ with his forward colleagues adding support.Flanker Clarke drove on to within reach of the line, but the ensuing ruck produced a relieving penalty.
