, , ,


A determined Paul Magee sprints clear for Dungannon's opening try.

Ulster’s big rugby weekend got off to a disappointing start with Dungannon losing out to Bruff in the All Ireland Cup Final at St Mary’s RFC on Saturday afternoon.

The Dungannon side got off to a slow start allowing Bruff to set the pace up front. Bruff prop David Horan went over early for an unconverted try, and shortly after the Munster side extended their lead with a penalty from out half Tony Cahill, giving Bruff an 8 – 0 lead.

The opening quarter was contested mostly in the Dungannon half with the Tyrone side being limited to a couple of breaks up field. Bruff appeared more eager for the contest up front and their defence was well organised, but Dungannon eventually managed to work their way back into . . .
