With just under two weeks remaining before the 1st XV embark on their League campaign with an away trip to Ennis, the lads were again put through their paces with an away friendly to Killorglin in their final pre-season game. Despite recording a morale boosting victory over Newcastle West on Sunday last, the coaches and players felt that certain aspects of their play were below standard and that another tough encounter provided a platform for the lads to further dust off the cobwebs. Under the stewardship of both Eamon Foley and Timmy Cotter, the lads have added a real zest and bite to their play. With the weather being kind to us over the last couple of days, it provided ideal conditions for both teams to try and play a more expansive game. With this in mind, Abbey started the brighter of the two teams and were rewarded with a fine effort from centre John Murphy who raced through for the first score of the game. Abbey were awarded a scrum just shy of the half way line and when quick ball came off the back, the lads worked their way down the blind side. With Mike Dillane making yards down the wing, he passed inside to Murphy who raced under the posts for the first score of the day. Michael Roche duly converted. Abbey could scarcely believe their luck when barely two minutes later, Michael Enright found a gap to power his way through. Despite picking up a knee injury in the process, he managed to offload the ball, where it was recycled again and spread out wide to Daniel Ward, who found David Collins coming through. Collins broke through one tackle, drew in another and sent his brother Philip down the line to score a great try. Again Michael Roche converted. Abbey’s third try wasn’t long coming again when the lads off a line out worked their way up the field. The ball was spread wide to Mike Dillane who cut back in to set up a ruck. Killorglin however did well to steal a turnover and worked a few phases until from a resulting maul, Colm O’Sullivan managed to wrestle the ball away. Stevie Daly was quick to pounce on the loose ball, and after having spotted a huge gap, pinned his ears back to race towards the try line. Daly still had much to do and dummied two players while also evading a tackle to score a great individual try. Roche added the extras. Abbey were now cruising at this stage and were ready to put the game to bed. Pressure from the lads forced Killorglin to knock on. With the referee allowing advantage, the loose ball was picked up by Liam McEnery, who passed it back inside to Eoin O’Connell, who was making his welcoming return from Australia. O’Connell spotted Michael Roche bursting through and again it was all too easy for him as he made his way towards the line. Poor defending from Killorglin allowed Roche to make his way underneath the posts and for him to add to his impressive tally for the day.

The first twenty minute break seem to come at the right time for Killorglin who were finding the action getting tough. Stern words from their coach seem to reignite their interest by testing Abbeys resolute in defence. Having made their way inside the visitors 22, a feat that was all too scarce, Killorglin forced Abbey into touch and from the resulting line out, they mauled their way towards the try line to score a somewhat fortuitous try, after it seemed that the Killorglin player had knocked the ball on. However, the decision stood and the try was converted by their scrum half. Abbey were dealt a blow when centre John Murphy went off injured, which forced them to re-jig their backline, with both Liam McEnery and Eoin O’Connell forming the new centre partnership.

Abbey now were in total control by the time the referee blew up for the end of the first twenty minutes. Enforced errors after another, as well as poor defending by Killorglin allowed Abbey to capitalise and to duly counter-attack at every opportune moment with great success.

Despite not scoring anything in the second 20 minute period, Abbey still managed to maintain their lead and were showing great glimpses of ball handling skills, while also showing no fear of playing a more expansive game. Abbey got off to a great start in the third period with quick passing out wide causing all problems for Killorglins defence. It didn’t take long before Abbey were again celebrating a try, when off the back of a strong scrum in their own half, Daniel Ward popped the ball to Michael Roche who evaded a couple of loose tackles to run un-opposed under the sticks. With time almost up, Abbey attacked the Killorglin line once again. From the base of a ruck just shy of the half way line, quick ball was spread out wide to Mike Dillane who gained a few metres before off loading to the oncoming Daniel Ward in support, who broke through two tackles to seal a convincing win for the lads. Despite raking up an impressive score, the lads know that an improved performance is needed against a strong and competitive Ennis side in two weekends time. However, positives can be taken from the game with the backs showing a willingness to play a more expansive game, while the forwards led by captain Kieran McCarthy were competitive at the breakdown and at the scrum. Much to ado but Rome wasn’t build in a day.
