The men’s First team were the only team to play a quarter final game having achieved third place overall during the regular season. They faced long time rivals Parc Olympique on home soil of St Julie. Parc O, who finished bottom of the league, were looking to create an upset and started strongly. MIRFC scored some great tries with excellent passing and support running. However, some defensive errors and missed tackles allowed Parc O to match them try for try. MIRFC had a slight lead of 14-12 at the half time break.
In the second half, the heavens opened and the rain lashed down on St Julie. Parc O must have felt like they had been hit by a hurricane as MIRFC dealt better with the conditions and started to open up a lead. Keeping a clean sheet in the second half, MIRFC finished the game 31-12. This weekend they travel to Ottawa to face the Indians who finished second with one bonus point more than the Irish. Kick off is at 3.30pm.
Having both finished top of their tables, the Second and Third teams go straight to the semi finals which will be played at St Julie. The Third team face Westmount at 1.30pm. This will be followed the Second team versus Ottawa Scottish at 3.30pm
