Navan RFC up to third

Action from Navan v Sunday's Well

Navan secured their fourth successive AIL Div 2B win with a 32-10 bonus point victory over Sunday's Well at Balreask Old today.

However, it didn't look good for Navan early in the second-half as they trailed 8-10 Cyprian Jouve (Sunday's Well) picked up a yellow card and Navan capitalised and added three tries for the remainder.

Collie O'Reilly converted  penalty to open the scoring in the seventh minute and Riann van der Vyver went over for an unconverted try soon after and a 8-3 interval advantage.

The Cork side resumed smartly and claimed a converted try as Navan struggled to create any clear openings, until Jouve was sin-binned.
Former Old Belvedere player Willie Staunton was introduced at out-half and converted the 57th minute penalty following Jouve's departure.

Sean McEntaggart (two) and Eoin King added the tries.

Navan - Robbie Waters, Sean McEntaggart, Vaa Mailei, Riann van der Vyver, James Ring, Collie O'Reilly, Brian Haugh; Eoin King, Sean Healy, Sean O'Heir, Ronan Scott, Eoin Noonan, Conor Hand, Conor Farrell, Conor Hand. Replacements - Brian McGovern, Leigh Jackson, James Whittaker, Ray Moloney, Harry Hester, Willie Staunton, Sean Vodden.
