Mixed fortunes for Navan teams

There was mixed fortunes for the Navan rugby teams today when they featured in Leinster u-17 and u-19 Premier League finals at Templeville Road the home of St Mary’s RFC.

The Navan u-19s put in a big performance to defeat Ardee/Dundalk 9-6 in their final played in pleasant spring sunshine.

All the Navan scores came from the boot of place-kicker Graham Garland who landed three penalties including what proved to be the last crucial three points with only minutes remaining.

Garland’s match-winning kick was from the Ardee 10-metre line and despite the distance involved the ball comfortably cleared the bar.

In the curtain-raiser the Navan u-17s narrowly lost out 11-12 to Skerries in their decider.

Conor Nash scored the Navan try with Christian Byrne tagging on two penalties. Those scores helped Navan edge in front going into the closing stages but Luke Cullen ran in for a late try to give Skerries their win.
