Montreal Irish Prems and Reserve win at home after 3 week break

After a 3 week break the Irish Men were itching to get some rugby play in.  Starting a 3 week home game stretch the Irish were welcoming an alert and ready Wanderers who were wishing to wash away their previous losses to the Club de Rugby Quebec.

Montreal Irish Reserve win 39-0 against Wanderers

First up were the Irish Men’s Reserves, who with a solid bench of 22 players, handily won 39-0 on hot and humid Saturday afternoon in Ste-Julie.  The reserves displayed that they were willing to do anything to keep the ball in the opposition’s field including blocking a kick using one Alex Wolfe’s face who would not let a possible broken nose take him out of play.  Defensively the team also showed great resolve as the Wanderers, desperate to get a mark on the score sheet were unable to score a try even though they were camped on the Irish’s line for a solid 5 mins near the end of the second half.

Of mention are the duo of Phil Bibeau and Seb Juan-Alladio who scored 3 and 2 tries respectively.

Montreal Irish Prem gwin 30-13 against the Wanderers on a hot July 7th.

Next up were the First’s, now fired up from the Reserve’s win, came to the field and won 30-13 against the Wanderers.  International Cap player Marvin Taylor scored his first try of the season.

 

Thus concluded a very successful weekend in Sainte-Julie which included a mini rugby camp in the early morning.  The men showed that their thirst for victory did not wane during the three week break which included a Club trip to Toronto to watch a Canada vs Ireland test match who all that went say should be done again.

Stay tuned for next week as Saint-Julie will be hosting a SUPER SATURDAY and all Irish squads will be playing at home.   The men’s will be looking to even up against the Ottawa Indians and the thirds a friendly against St-Jean.  The women’s will be facing the Ottawa Indians and Hull.  Expect a lot a cheering and great rugby.
