Watching Ireland’s victory over Scotland on the television may have been a good option as there wasn’t a lot else for Carrick RFC supporters to cheer about at the weekend.
The 1st XV were comprehensively beaten at Omagh by 43 points to 3. The 2nds were also beaten by Omagh 12 – 0. The 3rd XV lost out by the narrowest of margins up at Grosvenor 13-12. And the 5th XV game against QUB was called off. Thankfully the Under 19s brought a silver lining to an otherwise black cloud by beating local rivals Larne 7 – 3 in a friendly at the Glynn.
