Abbeyfeale 08
Cobh Pirates 15
Abbeyfeale were under no illusions as to what faced them when they entered Cobh’s rugby grounds on Sunday last (6th March) in the penultimate round of league fixtures. A mammoth task of extraordinary proportions awaited them, a David Vs Goliath task at hand, but one where the eternal optimist perhaps believed that the away team could do what their predecessors couldn’t do so far at the home side’s ground, and perhaps, just perhaps,sneak the unlikeliest of unlikeliest victories.

With dark clouds settling in and with showers before the game, one be forgiven to assume that a tight knit game could be the order of the day, but with Cobh possessing a potent backline, one could somehow never imagine them following the script.

Abbey were playing with great intensity in the early exchanges, but were finding it difficult to open up a Cobh defence that was impressive throughout the game. With the conditions being far from ideal, it was the home side that were handling the elements a lot better, with their handling and distribution being accurate.
Cobh’s game plan was evident from early on. With their forwards, particularly their No.8, being a constant thorn with ball in hand, the home side looked to play a more expansive game plan, with their back line possessing speed and power. The home side, through good game management from their out half, were spreading the ball wide with ease, and were at times, creating mismatches outside. This allowed them to get over the gain line with ease on a number of occasions, with Abbey’s defence not rushing up quickly enough to counteract their attack in play. Cobh were piling the pressure on Abbey’s defence and almost made a breakthrough, only for a superb tackle from hooker, Liam O’Connor, to deny them a score, and to also win his team a penalty. Cobh were soon to get another chance and when awarded a scrum five metres out, they saw this as an opportunity to post a score. Following a break from their No.8 from the base, Pirates worked a number of phases, committing a number of Abbey defenders in the ruck. With space out wide, they spread it until it found their winger all alone, who raced over for the first try of the day.
Abbey were creating chances for themselves, but with Cobh’s defence excelling, the away side just couldn’t buy a penalty kick to settle the nerves with points on the board. Cobh, however, were soon to double their lead, when a neat chip over the top from the their out half, saw his winger race on to regather the loose ball and touch down. Again, Cobh failed to add the extras, something which was to come back and haunt them at the end.
With the second half barely underway, Abbey became complacent, and when Cobh spotted a gap out wide, they capitalised, carving through weak tackles before slotting down for their third try of the day. The home side now were on the ascendancy and were pressing hard in search of that elusive fourth try. However, Abbey’s defence was equally combative, with players such as Gerard Walsh, Colm O’Sullivan, Liam McEnery and John Murphy, all putting in impressive shifts in defence. Despite being fifteen points in arrears, it would have been easy for Abbey to drop their heads, but a try from Michael Enright, following a fine break from Jake Quirke at the base of a scrum, gave Abbey a timely boost. A nail biting finish at the end then ensued and when Abbey were awarded a penalty in injury time, there was never any doubt that they would opt for the posts. With pressure mounting, scrum half, Stevie Daly, held his nerve, to slot over the three points to claim an invaluable losing bonus point.
Sadly, despite losing their 100% record, the lads put in an incredible shift against a side that possessed good quality throughout. It would have been easy to drop their heads with Cobh leading by 15 points to nil at one stage, but a try from Michael Enright, seemed to galvanise the lads efforts as they regrouped to finish strongly. Cobh, who played outstanding throughout in poor conditions, probably will be disappointed that they didn’t get a fourth try. Their defence was pretty impressive while their attack caused a number of problems for us, particularly their offloading in the tackle. Despite conceding 3 tries, our defence was pretty combative, with the lads defending bravely towards the latter stages of the second half, when Cobh sought a fourth try. The barrage of attacks from Cobh were plentiful to say the least, but Abbey stood firm to deny them a score. The lads ability to claw their way back to salvage a losing bonus point has to be commended also, and only enforces the strong will and character that this team possess. Their ‘fight-to-the-end’ spirit has only endeared them to their many strong band of followers. Despite this defeat, there is still very much an air of optimism within the camp. The response after the game was one of positivity, that all is not lost. Knowing that their own destiny is in their hands, should not faze the lads. In fact, it should offer renewed hope, something which they need after such a bruising and testing encounter.
The scenario that faces the lads now is that, having denied Cobh a winning bonus point, and they themselves having gained a losing bonus point (something which could prove invaluable at the end) it all comes down to the final league fixture of the regular season, when the lads host Kinsale at the Grove Grounds. Holding a slender one point lead over Cobh at the top, Abbey need to win to stand any chance of securing promotion and potentially, the league crown. We await Kinsale with bated breath. Bring them on!!!
