Scorers: Nevin(1*Try), Quinn(1*Try), Kearns(2^Conv)


When Rainey II travelled to Orangefield to meet Grosvenor II in Provincial 1, they found themselves up against a full strength side, since once again, Grosvenor's first team had no fixture on the day.  An unfortunate Rainey side were clear winners when they last met, but had no answer this time as Grosvenor strolled to a 26-0 interval lead.  To their credit, Rainey raised their game after the break with hooker Nevin and scrum-half Quinn crossing for tries which out-half Kearns converted.  They missed a real chance of getting even closer and making a game of it before an interception try dampened their enthusiasm and sealed the issue.

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.
