We knew Gav Maguire’s SCT were going to be good this year, but maybe not this good! Boy, it felt great watching a St. Conleth’s team ‘boss it’ over real quality competition. Gav’s boys have won at every age level and he has them gelling at the right moment, beating old nemesis, St. Pat’s of Navan, 20-8 at Wanderers’. Captain Kevin Dolan led a spirited group to a comprehensive victory, with Sean Bortolozzo and Ben Doggett scoring exhilarating tries and Ben also kicking them over the bar from every angle and distance, and through a swirling wind! Even the sin-binning of three Conlethians did not slow them down, with Poguie chewing up the yards and their ball-carriers, Robert Cripwell gleefully bulldozing their pack and Cameron Ross-O’Reilly going on some mad, scintillating kick-and-runs. Too many times, Conlethian teams have won the style and sportsmanship points, but lost the match. Now, we may still run and pass with aplomb, but we will also run you over!
