In a top-of-the-table clash at Orangefield, Rainey II demolished Grosvenor II 12-59, scoring nine tries to open up a six point lead in Provincial 1.  The home side simply couldn’t cope with the visitors’ forward power up front as Rainey chalked up their fifth bonus point win of the season.

In atrocious conditions, No8 Eunan Shaw scored a hat-trick as Rainey OB II ran rampant against a useful Ballyclare II to maintain their 100% record in Provincial 1.  With all eight tries coming from the forwards, six from the back-row alone, the backs were left to play second fiddle on a occasion when 8-man rugby was the order of the day.


Rainey next travel to Orangefield on Saturday for a top of the table clash against perennial rivals Grosvenor II.  Like Rainey, Grosvenor are unbeaten in the league, but dropped a bonus point opportunity away to Dungannon at the weekend.

Rainey II played some fantastic free-flowing rugby as they eased to a 26-5 bonus point win over Dungannon II at Hatrick Park, an unanswered four-try onslaught in the first half seeing them home.  Although events conspired to keep them from adding to their total in the second-half, there was never any doubt as to how the match would finish.

Rainey II travelled to the Mountview Road grounds for their second league match of the season against Ballynahinch IV.  Based on the same fixture last season, they were expecting a tight, hard-fought affair, but in the end they ran out easy 10-59 winners to sit comfortably atop Provincial 1 with a full complement of points.
