After getting a full house of predictions in AIL 1A it’s back down to earth with a 60% hit rate in 1B and wouldn’t you know it, it was two Ulster clubs, Banbridge and City of Armagh that let us down.
Highfield were able to take full advantage of their win at Armagh with shannon continuing their good run with a win against the out of form Old Wesley.
Old Belvedere and Malone both leapfrog City of Armagh with their wins against Banbridge ,and Navan respectively.
ENERGIA AIL 1B SCORERS
This was the lowest scoring week in AIL 1B as Storm Denis played its hand. The 135 points came from 18 tries, 12 conversions (67% conversion rate) and 7 penalties.
Only two players got into double figures this week with Peter Osborne (Naas) hitting 10 points with 2 penalties and 2 conversions and Sam Burns (Highfield) hitting the same amount through 2 tries.
Osborne leapfrogs Ruairi Shields (St Mary’s College) in the leading scorer table and Malone’s Callum Smith edges into the top ten for the first time.
In the leading try scorers table the only significant move is Banbridge’s Peter Cromie breaking away from the group chasing Pa Ryan to move into second place on his own with 7 tries to date.
