UL Bohs 3rds 25 – 8 Presentation
Bohs started poorly against presentation on Saturday afternoon in Annacotty. Presentation from the start set out their stall of keeping the ball in tight with their pack. For the first 20mins of the game Presentation were camped in Bohs 22, and would have felt hard done by with only coming away with 3 points for all the possession they had. Bohs scrum in the first few exchanges was notably under strain and why wouldn’t it be, with 3 new faces in the front row of 2 x20’s players and a converted wing forward to prop (Martin Lynch). This was the first game for the front 5 together. Bohs after a few scrums got their pack in order and were up to the heavy hitting front row of Presentation. After some ruthless tackling on the fringes of rucks by Eoghan Power & co., Bohs conceded a few penalties and on 20mins presentation dropped one between the posts as they could not break down Bohs admirable defense.
From the restart Bohs made an impact and pushed Presentation into their own half and presentation conceded a penalty in the middle of the field. Philip Hackett kicked to the corner as the wind cutting across the field did not make kicking from the tee an option. From the line out Bohs gathered and U-20 Cian O’Sullivan somehow snuck thru the maul and scored in the corner. Leaving one of the Presentation pack on the ground a damaged shoulder as he tried to tackle him on the line. The conversion was missed from the sideline facing into the wind.
The next score to come was on 30 mins when Philip Hackett struck a penalty from half way in the very blustery conditions, but he split the posts with ease.
Bohs pack and back line began to exert more pressure before half time and as Presentation tried to clear a ball from their own try area, it landed in the hands of Kyle Murphy playing centre who broke one tackle and side stepped to score left of the posts. Philip Hackett duly converted
Half time score 15-3
From the restart Bohs gave away a silly penalty and Presentation missed the opportunity by pushing the ball wide. As a result of this Bohs upped the tempo of the game and tried to pass the ball in hand. On 50 mins a slick backline move set up by a ruck in the middle of the field allowed Daragh Nichols to just touch down in the corner. The TMO was unavailable to review. Philip Hacket converted again from the sideline.
With Bohs being 19 points up they again tried to run everything in hand and where a cool head should have made them put Presentation back in their own half by kicking to the corners, Presentation turned over the ball on 62 mins on the deck and shipped it out wide with a lovely switch on the half way to allow their winger # 14 score under the posts uncontested. Presentation missed the conversion.
Bohs after this wake up call, began to bring the game under their control and because of their patience were awarded a Penalty which Philip Hackett dully converted.
Graeme Burns was delighted after the game and lets hope the 3rds in the next round get a good turn out of players and support as they had on Saturday. Much appreciation to everyone who attended to cheer the 3rds on..
