In Pictures: Portlaoise Rugby Club host annual juvenile awards evening

Portlaoise RFC U-16s

Portlaoise Rugby Club held their annual awards evening in Togher recently.

Former Portlaoise RFC youth player and current Connacht player Eoghan Masterson presented prizes from the minis to the U-18s.

While president Pat Hooban officiated at the awards which drew a large attendance.

The Portlaoise U-16s celebrated winning the Leinster Plate where they defeated Tullow back in May. 

A previous meeting in the year had seen Tullow winning by a cricket score so Portlaoise went into this game firmly as underdogs.

However, Portlaoise ran out 26-22 winners in Donnybrook to claim a fully deserved success.
