Banbridge Academy rugby Coach Brian Leslie is looking for his side to bounce back from their Schools’ Cup exit by producing their best in the Schools’ Bowl.
Speaking about Saturday’s 6-0 defeat at Portora, Coach Leslie said: “It was a tight game. I don’t feel we really played our best rugby.
“We couldn’t get anybody going forward. Portora never looked like scoring a try, but certainly neither did we.
“They were very good at keeping the ball, they held it well when they had it and credit to them.
“There wasn’t a lack of effort from our boys and our Captain, No 8 Matthew Bell and scrum half Jay Pinion both had a good game.”
Coach Leslie added: “We are into the Bowl now. We play Portadown College on Saturday February 7 at home.
“We’ve played them a couple of times this year and beat them at their place in a fairly high scoring game. I’m happy it’s at home but it will be another tough cup game.”
