Naas Excel in Final Round of Ulster Bank League to Set Up Promotion Opportunity

November 7, 2018

Naas senior squad completed the final round of their Ulster Bank League campaign in superb style on Saturday last (13th April) at Forenaughts when they hosted Instonians of Belfast and scored an impressive nine tries, four of which were in the first period, to secure a comprehensive bonus point win. Naas hooker Jock Toland and backrow Misioka Timoteo lead the charge with a hatrick of tries each which was impressive but probably of more significance was the outstanding defensive performance of the entire Naas first team which denied Instonians a single score. This result means Naas have now finished third overall in the league, behind Rainey Old Boys and NUIM-Barnhall, after winning twelve of their fifteen rounds and have now set a new record in terms of their highest finish to date in senior AIL rugby. Naas will now travel to Dr. Hickey Park on Saturday next for a Division 2A promotion/relegation play-off against Greystones to determine whether they will be promoted to Division 2A next season for the first time.
