Drybrook United nil
Coney Hill “A” 5pts
(Abandoned after 29 minutes)
This friendly match came to a dramatic conclusion after the referee Mr Alex McDonald suddenly collapsed as a scrum was about to take place.
Several spectators and both sides’ medical teams rushed to assist him before the emergency services were called.
It was agreed that in the circumstances the match was called off and fortunately Mr McDonald had regained consciousness before being taken to hospital.
Up until then the match looked to be a very close encounter between two teams who looked to move the ball whenever they could despite the constant cold drizzle.
Drybrook had the best of the early exchanges but a couple of knock-ons close to the line spoiled some try scoring opportunities.
Coney Hill hit back and after a period of pressure they were just off target with a penalty attempt after 12 minutes.
