Comeragh Oil Winter League Final. Stallions vs Wolves.
The Winter League semi finals were completed at the weekend and we are now ready for the Grand Final which is scheduled for Sunday 8th May. As expected the table toppers Stallions captained by Noel Conway had a convincing 4-2 win over the Rhinos to book their place in the final. Jimmy Murphy’s Wolves proved to be the surprise packet of the League by defeating a fancied Sharks team by winning the first four matches. The Sharks had finished in second place after the league section but the Wolves called on their experience in the matchplay section and are worthy finalists. So the scene is set for the final and the destination of the Cole Memorial Trophy still lies in the balance. We are most grateful to our long term sponsor Comeragh Oil who have become an integral part of our Winter League.
Line Up for the Final on Sunday 8th May
Stallions v Wolves
Morrie Ferncombe  v Mark Flynn. Kenny Walsh (14) v Jimmy Murphy (10), Jack Mulligan (17) v Niall Colleran (13), Liam Leahy (20) v Brian Murphy (17), Colin Cotter (20) v Stephen Ronayne (21), Noel Conway (24) v Pat Murray (30)
