Rugby took a back seat on Saturday for the Fifth and Sixth Form team which represented the school at the annual AIJS 5 aside soccer tournament hosted by St. Gerard’s. The team, inspired by coaches Keenan and Sheridan, played well in all four matches: winning one, losing one and drawing two. Good enough for Ireland in Italia 90, but alas these AIJS tournaments are more selective and the boys narrowly missed qualifying for the semi-finals. The boys were disappointed but should be immensely proud of their contributions throughout the morning. Wait until next year, when the boys will have had a full year of training in our new gym under their belt!
