It was a beautiful evening at Townspark, perfect conditions for a great game of rugby and we were not disappointed. Midleton RFC (J3’s) kicked off the rugby season with a competitive encounter against Muskerry RFC in the first round of the Dennehy cup in Townspark on Wednesday 5th Sept.
The more youthful visiting team came out on top after 90 minutes of end-to-end play. The final score doesn’t reflect how tight the game was with 15 mins to go and 1 point separating the sides. Midleton then gave away penalties that were easily slotted over by the visitors resulting in a final score of Midleton 13 Muskerry 20.
