Longford through to the Provincial Towns Plate Quarter Final 2018-04-03 13:24:00

31/03/2018 Leinster Provincials Towns Plate 2nd Round North Kildare 14 Longford 47

Longford Performance XV booked their place in the Quarter Finals of the Provincial Towns Plate with a comprehensive win versus fellow Leinster Division 1B team, North Kildare in Kilcock on Saturday past.

In spite of the early 12 O’Clock kick off Longford quickly got into their stride, with the combination of hard running by the forwards and slick passing by the backs being too much for an experimental North Kildare side.

Longford clocked up to 31 points to North Kildare’s 14 in the first half and another 16 in the second half, which was a lot more disjointed with Longford taking their foot a bit of the pedal, to leave the finals score 47-14 in Longford failure.

A tough test awaits in the semi-final away to Division 1B Champions, Kilkenny.

Overall it was a good performance by Longford who now keep the season going on a knock out basis, with the tantalising prospect of a match for silver ware in three games time if they can get over the significant hurdle of Kilkenny standing between them and a semi-final.

the try scorers on the day were Colm Glynn with 2, Liam Brady, Philly Dardis, Dylan Quinn, Hubie Connolly, Danny McHugh and Paul Gallogly.

The plate quarter final v Kilkenny is likely to take place this Sunday in Kilkenny at 3 PM.

Longford Squad:

L Brady, P Dardis, D Quinn, B McManus, A Hughes, H Connolly, K O’Gorman, P Gallogly, N Farrell, D McHugh, L Connolly, C Glynn, S McGuinness, J Mimnagh, F McGowan, D Farrell, R Keith, J Geelan, J Forde, M Cullen.
