Navan coach Alan Kingsley

Navan stay on course for title

The Navan players can reflect this morning on another away victory in the AIL Div 2C after they overcame Tullamore 22-18 at Tullamore last night. 

The win keeps Alan Kingsley's men on course for for the title and with just two games to go away to Bangor and at home to Sligo they remain strong favourites to secure the crown. 

Tullamore have caused the Navan side plenty of problems in the past especially on their home patch but this time around Kingsley's men came out on top. 

With a combination of their forward power and players with the ability to break the gainline Navan have already defeated some formidable foes already this season and they did the business again. 

They led 10-7 at the interval with the help of a Simon Hogan try, converted by Declan Bannon. 

In the last home game against Kanturk Bannon was in fine kicking form and he also added a penalty to give them their interval advantage last night. 

In the second-half the game hung in the balance but Navan put the ball through the phases and Leigh Jackson and Bryan McKeever ran in for touchdowns. 

Bannon converted one of the tries and all those scores proved to be just about enough to get past Tullamore who were well capable of generating scores themselves and finding space in the visitors' defence.
