Bonus point win for Portarlington RFC over Roscrea

The Portarlington U-12 girls who were picked to represent Leinster at the half time minis match at the Ireland v England match held in UCD bowl on Sunday.

Portarlington 36 Roscrea 13

Portarlington picked up all five points on Sunday with a bonus point victory against Roscrea in Lea Road.

This leaves some breathing space between them at the bottom two, before they face bottom side Newbridge away on Friday night week.

Portarlington scores came from Stephen Mulhall, Robbie Piggot (two), Anavil Storey, Chris McCormack and Ross Doyle. Mulhall made a telling impact on his return to the team, and last year’s captain will be very pleased with his all-round performance.

Once again Robert Piggott was superb and scored two brilliant tries. Chris McCormack scored a fantastic individual try from 40 metres out beating numerous defenders to score under the posts.

PORTARLINGTON: A Storey, J Moore, C McCormack, R Doyle, S Doggett, S Mulhall, A Smit, A Wilkinson, F Murphy, J Hennessy, C Dunne, S Oakley, J Brazon, R Dowling , M Petriw, -Playing Subs, R Piggott, J Connolly, S Maher, B Molloy and K Hunt.
