In true exiles style, the warm up was a hard hitting and exhausting as demonstarted by UUC Fullback Will McCaughan and Exiles cornor stone prop Phats.
This as it is always is, a fast flowing game of rugby a credit to the spririt of Exiles rugby, on the day the referee compared it to being played in the spirit of Barbarians Rugby, quick taps from 5 metre line saw Aaron Armstrong run the length of the pitch to score under the posts. It was a tight physical game, and the UUC 2’s played a very well structured game, but the level heads and sound defences of the Exiles kept the students at bay for most of the game.

This was a tight, physical and highly paced game which saw two teams trying to physically domainate each other at every cost so much so Micheal Dunleavy and Chris Mills ended up with yellow cards and 10 mins in the sin bin. Both teams competed hard but such was the ferocity of the game the exiles lost 5 players in total over the course of the game, and in the true spirit of exiles rugby Kevin the referee from the 2’s game came onto the wing to help out the exiles!
