Dungannon Royal School made it a winning start in the new Schools Cup format whereby six groups of 4 teams compete in sections for 10 places in the main competition come February. On Saturday RSD hosted Larne Grammar School winning 61-5. Tries were scored by Logan McIlravie (2), Michael Tate (2), James Girvan (2), Jack Girvan (2), Adam Junk (2) and Jonny McCammond. Skipper Jack Girvan landed 3 conversions. RSD also play Enniskillen Grammar and Portadown College in the group stages and the side is optimistic about its chances. Jack Girvan has Irish u18 7s experience while his younger brother, James played in the Ulster u16 development team that played a USA
representative side. Adam Scott and Jamie Allen (currently injured) played for the Ulster u18 Club side while Michael Tate was part of the summer training squad. Best wishes to coaches and players alike.
