Saturday 15th December, Round 9 of the All Ireland League. What a differrence a day makes. Last weeks shock defeat at the hands of Dublin University in Castle Avenue and Lansdowne win against UCC saw table toppers Clontarf slip to 3rd in the pecking order. The weather is set to be horrendous and DUFC will be hoping this will unsettle Lansdowne.
Team selection remains the same at nos. 1 – 3 (Coulson, Kelleher, Prendiville). Will Fay comes off the bench in at no.8, with Oisin Dowling switching sides to 4. Willie Earle comes back to play at 5 in the second row with flankers Jack O’Sullvan & Aaron Conneely at Openside.
Lansdowne have chosen at Scrum-half and out-half Tim Murphy and Scott Deasy again this week with Wings Peter Sullivan (11) and Mark O’Keefe (14). At 12 & 13 respectively Tom Roche and Harry Brennan. Driving from the full back position is Captain Eamonn Mills.
