1st XV Await Promotion Decision This Weekend Following Ards Defeat

After a remarkable few weeks, and playing their 6th game in 19 days, a drained looking 1st XV eventually fell at the last hurdle in their final game of the season, losing 10-8 away against Ards 1st XV in their promotion play off. A try from Ryan Cathcart and a penalty from Chris McVitty weren't enough to cancel out two tries in quick succession at the start of the second half. Skins wait with bated breath this weekend as Bangor seek a win to secure AIL promotion which will effectively promote the 1st XV into Q1.
