Co Cavan RFC minis at home to Virginia RFC and Clougher Valley RFC
Cavan played Virginia and Clougher Valley at home last Saturday .Both visiting teams travelled in large numbers with most clubs fielding two teams in the different age groups.First opposition for the Cavan's under 9's was the Virginia A team which Cavan came out very comfortable winners at the final whistle,scoring numerous tries.Cavan's ability to soak up the pressure and make the most of their opportunities served Cavan well as they carved out a well deserved win.Next up was Clougher Valley where Cavan started where they left off against Virginia scoring numerous tries.Oisin O'Reilly,Hamish Vickerman,Callum Mulligan and Ben Tully scored at least two tries each by the end of the first half .Clougher found Oisin Fitzpatrick very hard to handle with his direct running and setting up Shaun Gallagher and Josh Mcdwyer with the simplest of tries.
The third and final game was against the Virginia B team which pretty much wrapped up a hat trick of winning games .In this game Cavan scored tries from nearly all of the squad,Caiden Brady was his usual self solid in defence along with Ben Mcguigan,Christopher King and James Elliott.Ryan Duffy rounded off a very entertaining series off games crossing the whitewash and touching the ball down in the corner.
Cavan were guilty throughout the games of not protecting the ball in the ruck thus loosing possession and being off side however these will be worked on in our next training session and hopefully not repeated again .

Co cavan RFC U12's put on a great show in Ballyshannon

21st Nov 2015

Excellent results from Cavan's Under 12s who fielded two teams against Ballyshannon in Ballyshannon on Saturday last.  In the first match, Cavan proved too strong for Ballyshannon defeating them 14 tries to 9 over 60 minutes with hat-tricks from Tomas Harkin and Nathan Loughnan. There were 2 tries each from Cian Daly, Marcus Tully and new recruit Ryan O'Flynn who carried 4 Ballyshannon players over the line to score his second try. Also scoring was Cian Berry. Their tackling, running and ball handling skills are a great sign that their training and good coaching are starting to pay dividends.
In the second match, Cavan were unlucky not to win the game as they played and tackled with great skill. Alex McDonald opened the scoring and was quickly followed by Ballyshannon. Adam Pratt scored next, running from deep inside his own half but Ballyshannon matched them.  This was the pattern for the entire game with Jack Conroy, Adam Pratt, Mark McDwyer, Andrew Tilsen and Brady Maguire all scoring tries but just could not get the victory. Cavan had some new recruits playing and they were outstanding, helping to raise the standard of Cavan rugby even further.
Co Cavan RFC U9's travel to Ballyshannon
21st Nov 2015

Cavan's u9's played Ballyshannon last Saturday morning on their first ever match on a 3G pitch. With big number travelling subs were rolled on and off through the game.Cavan were more than a match for Ballyshannon winning comfortably in the end .Ballyshannon put up a brave fight at the start but a combination of experience and skill put Cavan firmly in the driving seat after the first few minutes.Cavan made a number of crucial defensive tackles in addition to gaining serious meters when the Cavan forwards got their hands on the ball.There was some fine individual performance by some of the players especially our new signings,but they all played well together as a unit which was good to see as rugby is very much a team sport.

Co Cavan RFC U9's  success in Virginia
31st October 2015

Cavan's u9's took the short trip up the N3 to Deer park to take on Virginia on Saturday last.They were two very evenly matched packs however Cavan got the bragging rights on this occasion coming out on top winning by seven tries to two.Virginia looked the more dangerous when they had ball in hand as the Cavan's tackling was not as good as it usually is,however it is one area we will be working on in the next few training sessions. Cavan scored some excellent tries going through several phases working the ball through the backs and the wings eventually crossing the whitewash.There was several individual tries also peeling of the back of scrums and rucks.The game was played with excellent sportsmanship and fair refereeing by the Virginia ref. We look forward to the return fixture. 
Cavan Team-Oisin Fitzpatrick,Cormac Crotty,Hamish Vickerman,Ben Tully,Sean Gallagher ,Loughlan Maguire ,Calum Mulligan,Jack Kelly,Adam O'Connell, Josh Mcdwyer ,James Elliott
