Corinthians U-14s were crowned Connacht League champions last weekend after an impressive 48-0 win over Galwegians in Crowley Park.

This was an outstanding team performance and the eight tries scored on the day epitomised a season laced with bright, attacking rugby.

There were fantastic scenes at the final whistle as supporters and players celebrated this incredible achievement.

This was the complete team performance but special mention must also go to the coaches Joe Corr, Bryan Casburn, Cammie Gallagher and Richard Caulfield.

Corinthians got off to an ideal start with a try from Ruben Davitt, which Bryan Casburn converted.

And before the interval further tries from Ryan Hanley (2) and Sam Gibson saw the Tuam Road side 24-0 ahead.

After the restart, the tries continued to flow as Gavin Lee crossed twice, while Cashburn was again accurate from the conversion.

Louis Corr, who was outstanding at full-back, scored an excellent individual try, before Hanley and Lee combined for try number eight that was converted by Casburn.

Corinthians lined out as follows: Louis Corr, Darragh Donnelly, Gavin Lee, Rubin Davitt, Adam Madden, Bryan Casburn, Colm O Suilleabhain. Alex Burke, Michael Coleman (capt), Patrick Fahy, Jonathan Flynn, Sam Gibson, Gareth Kilkelly, Ryan Hanley, Conal Gallagher. Replacements: Noel Thomas, James Timothy, Sean McDonagh, Jack Hehir, James Whelan, Michael Whelan, Dylan Jordan, Conor Gallagher, Jack Molloy, Brandon Hynes.
