Senior Competitions 2015: Medallion Finals & 2ndXV Semis

Most of our energies are focused on 1stXV rugby here at the FRU, but before the Cup and Plate finals KO next week, let’s take some time to look at the current state of the Medallion & 2ndXV competitions.

The finals of Medallion Shield and Plate competitions took place within the last number of games, both games being copies of their respective fixtures in this season’s 1stXV Cup and Plate finals. The results of these are shown below along with the semifinal fixtures which took place recently:

Medallion Shield Semifinals

So, it’s RBAI and Ballymena Academy who walk away with silverware from the Medallion competitions; we will have to see if one or both can manage the double come the 17th & 19th March in the 1stXV Cup and Plate competitions respectively.

In the 2ndXV Cup and Plate the respective draws for the semifinals have been made. In the latter competition all four results have been completed, but two quarterfinals are still to be played in the Cup QF and strangely it’s the two sets of teams who can’t keep away from each other this season – Down HS v Ballymena Academy and Wallace HS v RBAI:
