Instonians Rugby I XV 32 v Rainey Old Boys I XV 23

1 minute, 22 seconds Read

For AIL league Division 3 clubs like ourselves and Rainey, the Ulster League gives us both excellent opportunity to blood young players and give “bench” players game time.

Another feature of the Ulster league this year is the rolling sub system where you can make 12 changes to the team. This enhances a coach’s ability to trial these new players – well done to who-ever came up with the policy.

Both clubs fielded much changed teams from the close AIL fixture only 3 weeks earlier. The teams were different but the games were similar with it being once more entertaining and Inst coming out narrow winners.

The weather was ideal for running rugby and that is what the crowd saw with some excellent phases of play culminating in great tries, 4 to Inst and 2 to Rainey.
