URC D1: Instonians 47 CIYMS 27

, , , ,


I made the trip to Shawsbridge on Saturday afternoon with a Ulster Rugby Championship double header on offer as Instonians entertained CIYMS and Cooke hosted Clogher Valley. 

With lighting still an issue at this time of year I decided to cover Instonians first and then take in the second half of the Cooke match under the floodlights. Given the scores it would probably have been more rewarding the other way round!

Instonians went into the game looking for a win to get their season back on track but, despite picking up only one win in the league this season, I’d been hearing good things about CIYMS’ play this season so I was interested to see how this one would pan out. 

Instonians Scott Mclean picked up an early penalty as their scrum laid down a marker but it was CIYMS who enjoyed the best of the opening quarter, keeping Inst pinned in their own half. Despite a couple of close calls out wide the visitors only had a penalty . . .
