A Perfect Day for Naas!

November 7, 2018

Naas seniors travelled to Dr. Hickey Park on Saturday (20th April) to take on Greystones in their promotion/relegation play-off which would determine whether or not they would be promoted to Division 2A next season for the first time in their clubs history. Conditions on the day were ideal with glorious sunshine and a gently gusting sea breeze and there was a large gathering of supporters for both teams. Naas wings Johnny Delaney and Rob Campbell were brilliant and scored two exceptional tries each from a total of six tries, three of which were in the first period. Greystones stayed right intouch in the first period thanks to their exceptionally talented outhalf, Andrew Kealy who scored a try together with three penalties and a conversion which saw Naas lead by the narrowest of margins (17-16) at the interval. However in the second period Naas charged ahead following a second stunning try from Johnny Delaney and superb penalty and conversion from fullback David Aherne in the third quarter. Two further brilliant tries from the influential Naas backrow Misioka Timoteo and second row David Benn put the game beyond Greystones
