Larne Grammar’s Schools Cup run came to an abrupt end with a 42 – 0 defeat by Regent House on Saturday morning.

The home side ran in eight tries without reply on a dank and overcast morning and Regent now go forward to face Rainey Endowed in Round 3.

Larne fought a rear guard battle in the first half with a strong defence and good work at the breakdown getting them out of trouble on several occasions. However the visitors kicked the ball away aimlessly on too many occasions inviting Regent to attack time after time.

Larne held out till the 30th minute with the Regent No. 14 crossing the line on his third attempt and their impressive out half crossed before the half time to give the home side a 10 – 0 lead at the break.

Regent scored again shortly after the re-start to totally deflate the visitors and the Newtownards side romped home scoring a further five tries, converting one, to take the final score to Regent House 42 Larne 0.

It was a cold and gloomy old morning and the light wasn’t great, with LGS being my alma mater I’d had enough by the sixth try and slipped off to get warmed up, but here’s some pictures from the game anyway.
