Munster Rugby and IRFU Referee Department have just completed their very successful joint venture to find the next generation of referees in schools within the Limerick area.
West Munster Schools 1st And 2nd Year Blitz
Over 280 students from the Kerry region recently came together to compete in a 1st and 2nd year ten aside blitz.
A total of fifteen 1st year teams and eight 2nd year teams took to the field in what was a great day of high paced competitive rugby.
St. Brendan’s College from Killarney took part on the day on the school’s first occasion competing in a rugby competition.
Other competing schools were Abbeyfeale, Bantry, Carnegie Kilorglin, SMI Newcastle West, Tarbert Comprehensive, CBS Tralee, Mercy Mounthawk Tralee, Castleisland Community College, St. Pats Castleisland and Castlegregory Secondary School.
Munster Rugby would like to thank all schools for taking part in the event and look forward to hosting further schools competitions throughout West Munster.
