Portlaoise snatch crown in style

LAST Saturday, Portlaoise U-13s headed to Naas to play their last game of the 2013/14 season against Athy, and came away with a memorable 14-3 victory, becoming the North Midlands Area League champions for 2013/14.

Portlaoise Rugby Club would like to pay a special tribute to the community of support that has built up around this squad of players, from the tea and sandwich makers, the transporters who carried them throughout Leinster, the parents, the physio (Mick) and all those throughout the year to support these 12-year-olds on their journey in rugby.

Well done lads and continued success in the years ahead!
