Salut à tous, (Hi Everyone)
The Terenure U13’s European Youth Rugby Festival is due to take place in Dublin over the weekend of (Sat 5th – Sun 6th May) and tonight the official draw for the first phase of the tournament took place.
Last year a select team of U13’s from Dungannon competed in this prestigious tournament and narrowly missed out on taking part in the final when they were beaten 5-0 in a hard fought semi-final against a hard tackling and strong running SCR-XV team from France but this year, under the guidance of Philip McCammon (AKA Soapy) and Ashley Clarke, the boys from Dungannon hope to go one better and win the tournament outright. (Go the Bulls!).
