Cleaver Fulton Rankin Tag Rugby Team win the Spring League

May 3, 2016

A dedicated team from Cleaver Fulton Rankin took part in the Tag Rugby Spring League every Wednesday night for the past 6 weeks, organised by the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU).

The Cleaver Fulton Rankin team consisted of both male and female staff members. The team played in the Tag Rugby Spring League Final on Wednesday 27 April and experienced a victorious win.

Solicitor, Adam Leitch who was the Cleaver Fulton Rankin Team Captain commented on the final match, “The spring league reached a dramatic finale last week as Cleaver Fulton Rankin triumphed over arch rivals Baker & McKenzie. Our team knew it would be another tough encounter against the side that had narrowly beaten us the previous week. We were however, challenged from very start, and Bakers recorded a try in the first minute. The team regrouped, fought back and scored a few tries of our own. The game was close, with the lead switching many times. Right up to the final whistle, Bakers threw everything they had at our line, but the Cleaver Fulton Rankin team fought back and took the match 20-17. I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who played on the team and made it a fun and worthwhile event for all.”

The Cleaver Fulton Rankin Tag Rugby team are playing this Wednesday 3 May in the first match of the Summer League at Deramore Park. We wish them all well!
