Ulster Carpets U18 North 17th February 2018
Scorers: Kearns(1*Try, 3*Conv, 2*Pen), Clarke(2*Try)

Rainey U18s set themselves up very nicely for the league playoffs with a surprisingly comfortable 27-0 win over section winners Ballymena.  Rainey started the game in determined fashion, aiming to put an abrupt halt to Ballymena's unbeaten record this season. The balance of play was very even in the early stages as both sets of forwards set about testing each other out, though Rainey with Kealan Friel having a super game in the 10 jersey, held an advantage in the backs department.

Rainey U18s had their sternest test of the season so far when they came up against Letterkenny in the league last Saturday.  In the end, they ran out comfortable 37 - 5 winners, but they were made to work hard for their victory by the Donegal men.  Rainey can look back on some missed opportunities and handling errors which took the gloss off the performance, but all said and done, it was a good day at the office.

Rainey OB U18s travelled to the Palace Grounds in Armagh for a friendly fixture last Saturday, coming away with a satisfying 31-0 victory. Although Armagh enjoyed a significant weight advantage in the scrums, they were never able to make it count, with the visitors driving them off their own ball on several occasions, while the quality of the Rainey defence ensured their line was only threatened on a couple of occasions.

Rainey U18s kept intact their Ulster Carpets U18 League North record when then had an easy victory over Limavady last Saturday.  Unfortunately, Limavady were unable to field a complete team, which resulted in a succession of Rainey players swapping sides in an attempt to make a contest of the match. In this at least, they failed, as Rainey ran out 76 - 3 winners.
