Strong Larne performance in first round of Junior Cup v Malone
at 10th Sept saw Larne face Malone 2nds in the 1st round of the Junior Cup and also the launch of the new kit which was handed over by our team sponsors Damien Maguire of AM NEXDAY, Davy Wilson from Freight Partnership, James McCluggage from NFU Mutual an
Larne showed their dominance straight from kick off and got on the scoreboard almost immediately with a Philip Andrews penalty, closely followed up again with a 2nd penalty.
Malone hit back at the Glynn men with the 1st try of the game, scoring out wide after putting a few good phases together.
Some good probing kicks from Garrett and Agnew gave Larne good territory. Another infringement at the breakdown allowed Philip to slot another kick over.
A neat kick over the top from Garrett allowed Burns to show his electric pace to beat the winger and fullback to the ball and hack on to score a try and leave the half time score at 14 - 5.
Larne had their tails up going into the 2nd half and started playing a game of territory controlled superbly by Garrett from scrum half and Andrews at out half.
Larne were soon on the score sheet again with a well worked rolling maul set up from a line out just inside Malone's 22 which Burford was on hand to finish off.
Next up was Stuart Andrews to score for the 3rd week in a row showing great footwork from a tap penalty to cross the whitewash.
Larne where now starting to put the phases together and build continuity and Agnew showed pace and power to finish the try of the day after great team work and a good line break by Burns, with a Sonny Bill Williams' off load by Aaron McBride to feed Agnew for the score.
Full time 42 - 5.
