Seconds' League

Dundalk RFC seconds' finished third in the league following their heavy final day defeat to Gorey RFC on Saturday.

Having sat second at kick-off, Dundalk may well have fancied their chances against their bottom-half opponents. And while the scoreline indicates a resounding victory for the home side, Dundalk were worthy of being a lot closer at full-time. Indeed, the scoreline didn't accurately reflect their contribution to the game.

CaoilinTraynor and prop John Kerr - who converted his own try - were the five-point scorers, while Chris McGeady knocked over the first conversion.

Traynor and Conor McGarrian both made the step-up from the U18 team for the game.

Dundalk RFC: Ciarán Brannigan, John Kerr, David McGee;  Robin McGee, Joe Marks; Mark Pepper, Caoilin Traynor, Greg Whately; Simon Byrne, Chris McGeady; Gavin Butler, John McGahon, Matt Lourdes, Paddy Duffy, Donatus Jonkus
