Provincial League - Section 1 13th April 2017
Scorers: Coyle(1*Try), Nevin(1*Try), Trainor(1*Try), Murphy(2*Pen, 2*Conv)

 

In the Provincial League - Section 1, Rainey II defeated Bangor II by 25 - 20 under the Hatrick Park lights.  Bangor scored four of the seven tries, but lacked a place kicker.  Opening the score for Rainey was flanker Coyle who sampled rugby for the first time only a few weeks ago.  Out-half Murphy added the points.  Prop Nevin replied for Rainey when Bangor had shown what they could do, but Murphy landed a penalty to make it 15-5 at the break.  Another Murphy penalty saw Rainey well ahead, but two tries from Bangor altered the picture.  Rainey were able to breathe a little more easily when a driving maul gave hooker Trainor a try, but Bangor kept going to score again.

With Kukri Ulster Championship Division 1 sides handed a bye at the opening stage of the Towns' Cup, Rainey Old Boys II were not displeased when the draw paired them with Division 2 strugglers Donaghadee.  Many of the Rainey side have sampled rugby at a much higher level at some stage this season and, despite having to travel to Donaldson Park, were confident of winning.  And after dominating most of the game which was blown up five minutes early by referee Glenda Mellon, they ran out 49-11 winners.

In Provisional League: Section 1, a makeshift Rainey II side was swamped by Queen's II at the Dub. Tiarnen Walshe scored for Rainey in the first half when they competed well to turn round only 12-5 behind, but it was one-way traffic after that with the students romping to a facile 45-5 victory.

In Section 1 of the Provincial League, Dungannon II beat Rainey II by 26 points to 12 at an arctic Stevenson Park last Thursday night.   Conditions were good for rugby for part of the game, but a blizzard of fine snow made it an ordeal for the participants.  There was little between the sides, but Dungannon edged it by taking better options when chances cropped up.
