Under 13

The lads had a tough outing against Wexford who were powerful on the day.

Under 14s 

Longford 14 Portarlington 10

A good win today at 14-10 away to table toppers Portarlington. This was an unbelievably strong physical game. The Longford lads came together as a team and showed massive heart.

Huge work rate from them. Two tries from Brian Mulvihill with two conversions from Conor Clarke.

Under 15

Our game was called off and we take Edenderry on next week at home.

Under 16

Longford 15 Navan 34

Unfortunately the U16's came second again to Navan this time 34 - 15 in Longford.

The team, tired of "moral" victories so have said that, after Christmas, with the grading over, we want to see actual victories. The league proper starts in January and we are targeting a solid attack at the table.

Under 16 Girls

Longford 33 Clontarf 35

U16s had their first game of the season today against Clontarf. The girls were unlucky to lose by 2.  33-35. fantastic for their first game.

Under 14 Girls

Edenderry 7 Longford 65

This was a massive performance from the team who are now working really well together. Hats off to coach Morag who is putting in a great deal of training with the girls.

Under 18.5

We had a fantastic away win at Wexford on Saturday. Onwards and upwards!

Minis Blitz

We welcomed neighbours Carrick on Shannon on Saturday morning. It was a cold morning but the morning sunshine helped along with the great running rugby on display at all ages. The parents worked wonders after with some welcome food for the visiting players and parents.

Shane Mallon

We were delighted with the news that our own Shane Mallon, who learned his rugby with Longford Rugby youths and minis, was off to Dubai last week to represent Ireland in a development 7’s tournament.

We are equally delighted to celebrate with Shane on their success in winning the final on Saturday afternoon last. Congrats and well done Shane!
