1st Minis’ Blitz, Kilkenny v Athy - 19/09/10
Kilkenny Rugby Club’s first mini blitz of the season took place last week end at Foulkstown.
There was great excitement and trepidation as many young players took to the field to play their first competitive game. The visitors brought teams in all age groups from under 8 up to under 12. There were 3 matches in each age group with the exception of under 12s and 7s who contented themselves with regular training.
The under 12 section was the most competitive section where Kilkenny won their first and third games 4-2 and 3-0 respectively, while Athy won the second game 5-1. There was a strong emphasis on participation in all the younger age groups and all 120 players that turned up on the day got to play in at least 2 games each.
