The Tuam RFC squad that beat Carrick.

A SECOND half blitz saw Tuam seconds claim the Ard na Cregg Cup with an 8-5 win over Carrick last Sunday.

A try from Ross Monaghan, as well as a penalty from David Lally, was enough for the Tuam men to seal the win, despite trailing 5-0 at half time to a Peter Lavin try.

With the wind buffeting around the Corinthians RFC’s home ground, kicking from hand was rendered a lottery and both teams wisely adopted the same game plan, keeping it tight in the packs before using their back lines.

The story of the first half can be told through two 20-minute periods of pressure from each team. Tuam were in the ascendancy early, in terms of possession and territory. They couldn’t, however, make their dominance count on the scoreboard, despite the best efforts of their hugely effective ball carrying tight head prop, Barry Ruane.
