Scorers: Brown(1*Try), McErlain(1*Try), Andrews(1*Try), Devlin(1*Try), Clarke(1*Try), Shaw(1*Try), Quinn(3*Conv)



An inexperienced Rainey OB II side produced a marvellous display to defeat a fancied Ballyclare II team 36-19 at Hatrick Park.  With Ballyclare setting the pace in Qualifying 1, Rainey anticipated a stiff examination, but an outstanding first-half peformance took them to a great victory.

Try scorers for Rainey, who led 22-0 at the interval, were - centre A.Brown, prop D.McErlain, Prop T.Andrews, full-back C.Devlin, flanker C.Clarke and No8 E.Shaw.  Scrum-half Quinn added three conversions.

Outstanding for Rainey were forwards Shaw and Clarke, while young David McClelland did well in the centre.  A great result which should boost this very youthful squad.
