Toon coach hails side

Ballymoney Rugby Club continued their fine start to the campaign with a 25-12 win over CIYMS on Saturday.

Coach Jason Taggart hailed the efforts of his side.

“It was great to build on the win of last week with another win,” he said.

“It was a hard fought game against a much more physically larger side, but everyone performed well and showed the spirit and determination from last week.

“In defence we worked well as a team and the guys covered each other.

“Again this week we looked very dangerous in attack and scored some good trys.

“We were unlucky on a few occasions not to get the bonus point when we maybe picked the wrong pass but we will be able to work on this.

“Next week we have another big game away to Dromore which is never easy.

“Before that we will have to review the injuries to Hanna and Irvine from today and also the guys who were unavailable from last week.”

There were a few forced changes to the team that won the week before with James Campbell, John Bellingham and Jason Taggart coming into the squad for the injured Nigel Nevin, Arron Ramage and David Campbell.

The backs continued their great defensive display from last week with some excellent tackles. Also centres Cleland and McCaw looked dangerous on the counter attack.
