||Limavady 2nd XV
Enniskillen Second XV had a huge win at the weekend at home over league leaders Limavady in what was a very one sided affair for Skins, the final score ending 48-3 to the home side with an entertaining display for the support.
The line out was rather scrappy from both sides in wet conditions but the Skins’ scrum was dominant throughout with the front row of Alan Ferguson, William Finlay and Richie Beatty providing an excellent foundation for the impressive back row to work with. Cathal McGarry had an excellent game and was seemingly involved in everything on the day, carrying well and displaying some great handling skills in offloading during contact.
Ricky Lee, Michael Cadden and David Taylor in particular brought a physicality to the game that Limavady were simply not fit to deal with on the day, carrying relentlessly and thoroughly winning the contest at the breakdown, young second row Eric Elliot also put in a very industrious performance.
The back line were looking equally formidable with Ricky Connor providing great experience at scrum-half, and cousin Robert Connor showing huge potential outside him at ten with an adept kicking game and running some superb lines in attack. In addition the return of Michael Law continues to boost this seconds side and Limavady struggled to deal with numerous carries from the powerful centre, who had plenty of pace to utilise outside him through wingers Keelin Kelly and Chris Henry.
Limavady’s defence was lacklustre and slightly disinterested in the latter stages of the game and in the end it wasn’t much of a test for the home side, who began to break the line every few phases, but Skins took all their chances well and achieved a fitting scoreline in a game where they were clearly superior.
