Match Report

Clontarf 14 – 15 Cork Con
30th Oct, 2015

There was an awful lot of huffing and puffing in Castle Avenue on Saturday! Clontarf huffed and puffed trying to break down a Con defence that huffed and puffed to good effect. All this was supported by a referee who huffed and puffed himself pink with the number of penalties he awarded, in particular against…

Young Munster 27 Clontarf 27
6th Oct, 2015

In the end Clontarf can count themselves lucky to leave Greenfields with a share of the points and a free lesson in what happens when you lose control of the basics of your game. Clontarf were by far the more polished side in this encounter. However, a lack of ball control, particularly at restarts, handed…

Clontarf 38 Ballynahinch 17
30th Sep, 2015

This was a game of two halves . . . A silly comment given that all rugby games have two halves. So, more correctly, this was a game of two massively contrasting performances in which Clontarf rode their luck in the first half and came out runaway winners in the second. Watching the first half…

Clontarf 20 – Old Belvedere 14
23rd Sep, 2015

Clontarf’s first home fixture of the new UBL campaign on Friday night was notable for nothing except the victory that puts ‘Tarf on top of the table after two games. Rob McGrath can be congratulated for adding some light to an otherwise dull affair in which the interpretation of the referee was responsible for most…

UCD 16 – 24 Clontarf
14th Sep, 2015

On Friday night Clontarf slopped onto a wet Belfield bowl with a youngster starting only his second game in one of the most demanding positions in world sport . . . tight head prop. He went up against the current Irish U20 loose head and for half a game showed convincingly where his rugby future…

Terenure 0 – 9 Clontarf
1st May, 2015

Clontarf qualified for the 2014/15 UBL Final on Saturday by virtue of a performance diametrically opposite to the experience in the Bateman cup final in Cork last week. In Lakelands on Saturday Clontarf shunned the elements, the home crowd, the position of underdogs, and strangled the Terenure ambitions at source. Victory was achieved through an…

Ballynahinch 18 – Clontarf 33
15th Apr, 2015

This was Clontarf’s second visit to Ballymacarn Park in 3 weeks where, according to the IRFU website, Ballynahinch must be sick of the sight of them. They well may be. It certainly didn’t show in the level of hospitality shown by President David Napier and his Club. Once again the welcome and generosity was off…

Clontarf 43 – Cork Con 28
30th Mar, 2015

There were no prizes on offer to anyone concluding that this game would be dominated by the howling gale blowing towards the Castle Avenue end. However, as it turned out, the home side were more than capable in dealing with the blustery elements and a flustery referee to pin back an enthusiastic Cork Con side…

St Mary’s 21 Clontarf 17
6th Mar, 2015

In a game dominated by a howling gale blowing toward Templeville Road , Clontarf defended into the wind in the first half and , unfortunately for them, let the home side build a 21 3 lead which, in the end , became too high a target for Tarf to overcome in the second 40. St…

Clontarf 16 – 11 Terenure
23rd Feb, 2015

This game had everything you could want from a rugby match except the critical skills of accuracy and control. Terenure arrived to the Northside with the justifiable expectation that Clontarf were waiting in the long grass for them, armed for bear, as they say in hunting circles. The only problem was when we raised our…
