Hanna pleased to extend unbeaten run thumbnailColeraine Grammar School students Oscar Egan and David Brown who represented Ulster in the victory over Leinster at the weekend.

ANOTHER bonus point victory was enjoyed by Ballymoney First XV, this time against Omagh Seconds in the Conference League.
Ballymoney made a number of changes to the starting XV from the previous week, with Adam Pollock returning from injury to start at wing forward in place of injured Captain McFetridge. Moxen returned to the First XV after an ankle injury in pre-season and started at prop, while Andrew Young returned to the side after being unavailable recently. Matthew Pollock, Matthew Bell and Philip Beattie all were included after strong displays with David McKeeman taking over the captaincy in McFetridge's absence.
The unity of the whole First and Second XV squads was shown in the first five minutes as Moxen put his experience and strength to good effect to combine with Kenny and Brown to get a penalty at the scrum. Strang kicked the ball to the opposition '22' and from an excellent maul the forwards drove over from distance for Adam Pollock to come up with the ball after a well-worked forward's try. The conversation from Strang was successful and Ballymoney had an early 0-7 lead.
