RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR By Alan Hartnett – 9th March 2019 Brought to you in association with The Baba’s Barber Shop, CarlowKnockbeg College 1-15 Killorglin (Kerry) 2-8Top Oil Leinster School’s U-16 All-Ireland ‘A’ Football Semi FinalWhat an incredible bunch these young lads from Knockbeg are.An Ian Shanahan second half goal proved crucial as Knockbeg College defeated Kerry school Killorgan to reach the All-Ireland U-16 ‘A’ Football final in University of Limerick this afternoon.While Shanahan’s goal was the difference in the end, this was a complete team performance as every single player on the field shone.It was also something of a tactical masterclass from mentors Stephen Attride and Conor Ronan who made a switch at half time that really helped their side to victory.Knockbeg played with the breeze in the first half and although they scored 12 points, the concession of two goals meant they only led by a point.But the management team introduced Oisin Nolan to play as a sweeper in the second half and his positioning completely stunted the Killorglin attack which mustered just three points in the second period.Not only did Knockbeg have to contend with playing against the wind in the second half, they also had to deal with ten minutes of injury time that were played by the referee.And although they lost sweeper Nolan to a black and then a red card having previously being shown a yellow, they showed incredible composure to see out the victory.The defence, led by Jamie Kelly, Shane Buggy, Brendan McDonald and captain Ben Crotty tackled ferociously for the hour and never gave Killorglin an inch.Knockbeg played with the breeze in the first half and there was very little between the teams in the opening quarter.Knockbeg were controlling midfield with Ciaran Burke and Ian Shanahan breaking everything where Colin Dunne and Oisin Hooney swept in for breaks.Oisin Byrne tormented the Killorglin defence throughout and he got Knockbeg’s first two points.Oisin Doyle added another but Killorglin replied to each of those via Matthew Leslie and Diarmuid McGulligan.Fionn Bergin and Hooney edged Knockbeg ahead again but they were rocked by the concession of a goal which came from the boot of Dara McKiernan.Leslie moved Killorglin two ahead but Knockbeg reclaimed the lead thanks to points from Bryan McMahon, Oisin Byrne, Fionn Bergin and Colin Dunne.However, another Killorglin counter attack after 23 minutes saw the ball in the Knockbeg net again as Eoghan Hassett converted and then Leslie moved them two ahead again.Knockbeg also lost full back Orrie Doran to a black card in this period but they recovered with a point from Jamie Kelly and a brace from Fionn Bergin to go 0-12 to 2-5 ahead at half time.Killorglin has the wind now and they quickly eroded Knockbeg’s lead.Dara McKiernan, Conor Spillane and Ian Hassett all pointed to bring the Kerry lads a point ahead after 42 minutes.Knockbeg were also thankful to keeper Seán Dollard who pulled off a remarkable save during this period to keep out a third goal.But remarkably, Killorglin would not score again in the game.Points from Oisin Byrne and Oisin Hooney drew Knockbeg level with 50 minutes on the clock and then five minutes later we had the decisive score.Knockbeg broke on the counter attack and Bryan McMahon showed remarkable calmness on the ball to pull off a number of dummy solos to draw out the defenders before releasing midfielder Ian Shanahan.The St Joseph’s youngster was composed as keeper Ian Knight approached him and he slipped the ball into the corner of the net to send the massive Knockbeg support wild.Killorglin were then reduced to 14 men when Sean Cleary was sent off for an off the ball incident involving Fionn Bergin.The Grange man later pointed a free that put four between them and Knockbeg then faced into ten minutes of injury time.But they came through that and the Knockbeg Army march on the the All-Ireland decider.Knockbeg now advance to the All-Ireland final where they will face either Newry or Castlebar on March 30.SCORERS – KNOCKBEG: Fionn Bergin 0-5, Oisin Byrne 0-4, Ian Shanahan 1-0, Oisin Hooney 0-2, Colin Dunne, Jamie Kelly, Bryan McMahon and Oisin Doyle 0-1 each KILLORGLIN: Matthew Leslie 0-4, Diarmuid McGuilligan 0-1, Dara McKiernan 1-1, Eoghan Hassett 1-1, Conor Spillane 0-1KNOCKBEG: Sean Dollard (Killeshin); Jamie Kelly (St Joseph’s), Orrie Doran (Killeshin), Brendan McDonald (Killeshin); Tomas Byrne (St Joseph’s), Shane Buggy (Eire Og), Jesse McEvoy (Ballylinan); Ciaran Burke (Crettyard), Ian Shanahan (St Joseph’s); Oisin Hooney (St Joseph’s), Colin Dunne (Arles-Killeen), Oisin Doyle (Clonmore); Bryan McMahon (Palatine), Oisin Byrne (Arles-Killeen), Fionn Bergin (Grangenolvin).

Opinion: Selecting a different Team of the Decade

first_img‘ Opinion: Selecting a different Team of the Decade In the wake of the World Rugby awards, ANDRE-PIERRE CRONJE picks his own Team of the Decade for SA Rugby magazine.READ: Three Boks in Team of the Decade1 – Tendai MtawariraFor a decade the first name on any Springbok coach’s teamsheet was both metaphorically and literally that of Tendai Mtawarira. Beast was unparalleled at loosehead during the 2010s and it was fitting to see him finish his career decimating the English scrum in the World Cup final.2 – Bismarck du Plessis‘Bissie’ redefined the role of hooker in international rugby over the past decade. His strength was legendary but it was his ability to play as almost a fourth back-row player that really set him apart. In the age of ‘fetchers’, Bismarck could compete with the best of them at breakdown time.3 – Owen FranksIt’s often said in rugby that you build your team around your tighthead prop. If this is true, then Owen Franks seems a good candidate to build a team around. Having won two World Cups without losing a single game, Franks played over 100 times for New Zealand in the last decade and was a stalwart in the front row.4 – Eben EtzebethThe Springbok enforcer often does not always get the international recognition he truly deserves. The 85-cap Bok is a physical aberration, no player in the past decade (or possibly before) has brought as much physicality to the table. Whether in attack or defence, Etzebeth lives for a chance to impose himself on the game. He certainly has.5 – Brodie RetallickSince making his debut in 2012, Retallick has been the beating heart of the All Blacks tight five. For a second-row forward his ball skills and speed are extraordinary. Combine these physical attributes with a serious work rate and you have something very special indeed. One need only look at New Zealand’s inconsistency this year to see how much they miss him.6 – Sam WarburtonPerhaps a more contentious selection, but I think, deserved. The former Wales and Lions captain played both openside and blindside flank with aplomb thanks to his physicality and mobility. Where Warburton truly shone, though, was on defence. Whether in the tackle or contesting at rucks, Warburton was unparalleled in his defensive play. Add to this his talisman-like leadership quality and you have everything you could ever want in a flank.7 – Richie McCawCould there be anyone else? Sir Richie McCaw, the bane of non-Kiwi rugby fans the world over. Terroriser of rucks. Magician of the offside line. The ex-New Zealand captain played like he led: with dogged determination and a hell of a lot of heart. The living embodiment of ‘superior discontent’. It’s no surprise that he captained his side to two World Cup victories and was rightfully awarded Player of the Decade.8 – Kieran ReadIn a decade that delivered some exceptional No 8s – Vermeulen, Picamoles, Parisse, Stander to name a few –– Read was a cut above. He brought the physicality necessary to be a world-class eighthman and then some, but it was his deft ability to free his hands through the contact and offload that made him special. The ex-Kiwi captain was formidable.READ: McCaw named 15s Player of the Decade9 – Aaron SmithTo this day, I have yet to see a player with better service than Aaron Smith. His ability to bring runners on to the ball and function as the link between forwards and backs has been peerless over the past decade. In a team like New Zealand where speed of play is everything, Smith has been indispensable. Mix in a potent ability to snipe around the base of rucks, and an educated kicking game and suddenly you have your scrumhalf of the decade.10 – Dan CarterThe greatest of all time. A phenom the likes of which we’re unlikely to see for a long time. Carter played rugby with the serenity of a man with all the time in the world. His control over the game was so complete that at times it looked like he had scripted it. His kicking was immaculate, his distribution faultless – the perfect 10.11- Bryan HabanaA Springbok great and (after Lomu) probably the greatest wing to play the game. Everyone knows about Habana’s lethal pace and finishing ability but less is made of his defensive nous and considerable aerial skill. Anyone who thinks Habana was a spent force by the 2010s may want to argue with 24 international tries and one World Rugby Try of the Year.12 – Sonny Bill WilliamsTo many, not picking Ma’a Nonu at 12 will be seen as sacrilegious. And perhaps they are right: Nonu was technically the best inside centre New Zealand has ever had. So, why then pick Sonny Bill Williams? It’s an emotional decision. Williams for me, as for so many others who grew up playing and watching rugby in the 2010s, changed what it meant to be a centre.He played with skill and a swagger that made him the envy of the rugby world. A generational talent that could change the face of a game on his own. Sonny-Bill’s name became synonymous with the ‘miracle’ offload and he inspired every backline player since to develop that facet of their play. How many other players can claim that impact?13 – Conrad SmithThe most difficult position on the pitch to defend, and he made it look oh so easy. Smith always had the appearance of a grizzled war veteran and played his rugby much the same way: rarely flashy, always effective. A selection for the rugby purists; few realise just how good he was.14 – Julian SaveaSavea’s international career spanned only five years from 2012 to 2017. In that relatively brief period, however, he was an absolute force of nature. Savea was the decade’s top-scorer with 46 tries from only 54 games and at times looked genuinely unstoppable. He brought a physicality on the wing unwitnessed since Lomu.15 – Israel FolauAlthough his career in rugby union ended acrimoniously, what is indisputable was the talent of Israel Folau. With ball in hand there was always the feeling that he would conjure up something special. In a long line of exceptional Aussie fullbacks, Folau was every bit as enthralling as those who came before. Aerially there has never been a better fullback, and this is what gives him the slightest of edges over Ben Smith. ‘ AlphaCuteOprah’s New House Cost $90 Million, And This Is What It Looks LikeAlphaCute|SponsoredSponsoredUndoWorld Cup-winning Bok quartet in Eddie Jones’ all-time XVSA Rugby MagUndoWatch: Kolbe makes Test players look amateur – Ugo MonyeSA Rugby MagUndo熱門話題對肚腩脂肪感到後悔!試了在萬寧賣的這個後…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Bryan Habana makes a break ‘ Posted in Andre-Pierre Cronje, Columns, Test Rugby, Top headlines, Tournaments BuzzAura16 Cancer Causing Foods You Probably Eat Every DayBuzzAura|SponsoredSponsoredUndo sinoticia.com埃及艷後:她睡了全歐洲最強的男人,只為征服世界?sinoticia.com|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Five one-cap Boks that could still represent South AfricaSA Rugby MagUndocenter_img  12K  228 BabbelLearning a new language this year? – This app gets you speaking in just 3 weeksBabbel|SponsoredSponsoredUndo ‘ From the magazine: Jano Vermaak names his Perfect XVFormer Springbok, Bulls, Lions and Stormers scrumhalf Jano Vermaak names a team of the best he played alongside and against.SA Rugby MagUndoLoans | Search AdsLooking for loan in Hong Kong?
