Comfortable cup win for Limavady 1st XV thumbnailJohn Purcell takes the Banbridge number 8 to ground during Saturday’s Junior Cup success.

LIMAVADY 1st XV................... 50
BANBRIDGE 2nd XV................. 5
AFTER no game last weekend Limavady were back to action on Saturday, September 8, with a Junior Cup game against Banbridge 2nd XV.
Commitments elsewhere meant that Limavady fielded a side with six changes from their last starting XV which had a profound effect on the side. In fact, this performance was one of the finest by a Limavady side for quite a long time as they went on to secure  a victory of 50 - 5.
Banbridge struggled  to cope with the free flowing rugby and quick off loading from Limavady in the opening exchanges. The tone of the game was set right from the outset when, with only three minutes on the clock, Daniel Irvine crossed for his first try which was closely followed by Matthew Haslett's conversion.
