Portlaoise eventually got the first score after Glen Connolly made a good run up the left hand side and Callen Dunne was stopped short of the line.The resultant scrum left it easy for Conor Doran to pick and power over the line for his first try. Dylan Cahill narrowly missed the conversion kick.Portlaoise dominated the scrums and took three against the head, but that was the only place they could claim supremacy as constant handling errors and indiscipline kept New Ross in the game, half time score, 5 0 to Portlaoise.The home side got a good start to the second half, after they reclaimed the kick off and Doran ran in for his second try.Portlaoise started to get their game going and after a quick penalty and some slick passing by the backs, James Kidd went in for a try.It wasn’t long before Portlaoise went over again, after a sloppy lineout for New Ross, Doran gathered the loose ball and offloaded to the supporting Cian Coffey who went over for his first try in Portlaoise colours.Portlaoise pinned the away side into their own half and it wasn’t long before Conor Doran drove the entire New Ross pack over their line to score his second hat trick in two weeks.The home side were enjoying themselves now and threw ball around confidently, Sean Ward picked from a quick ruck and ran in under the posts for his side’s sixth try, Matthew Coonan converted to leave it 32 0 to Portlaoise.Portlaoise continued to attack, and it took a good covering tackle to stop James Kidd after a blistering run down the right hand side.It wasn’t long before Ward went over for his second try, Coonan converted to leave the final score 39-0 to Portlaoise.Squad: Callen Dunne, Bobo Lawal, Brian Barry, Glen Connolly, Declan Cox, Daragh Phelan, Cian Coffey, Conor Doran, Marc Bracken, Mitch Fitzpatrick, Mikie Daly, Paul Flanagan, Ciaran Culliton, James Kidd, Dylan Cahill, Eoin O’Brien McCormack, Sean Ward, Darragh Davies, Ronan Donlon, Matthew Coonan, Brian Keane.SEE ALSO – Remarkable Alex not letting autism or loss of vision stop him from achieving anything WhatsApp By Bronagh Scully – 18th January 2019 Portlaoise RFC U-15s dominate in big home win WhatsApp Facebook TAGSPortlaoise RFC New Arles road opens but disquiet over who was invited to official opening Laois secondary school announces scholarship winners for new academic year

Email* Horse Sport Enews The $60,000 GWL Realty Advisors Cup was a difficult test for the 30 entries on the first day of the Spruce Meadows “Canada One” Tournament. Anthony D’Amabrosio (USA) put a course together that would challenge riders over the 16 jumping efforts over 520 metres.There were five horse/rider combinations who cleared every obstacle to earn positions in the jump-off. It was a talented field that took to the ring, challenging for the GWL Realty Advisors Cup. American Rich Fellers and his Irish bred stallion, Flexible came out in front of the jump-off crew. They finished with the fastest time but it wasn’t an easy accomplishment with some talented pairs going in ahead of them.Calgarian John Anderson was the first to jump-off with his gelding Terrific. He manoeuvred the gelding around the 8 jumping efforts perfectly, as the pair crossed the finish line clear in a time of 44.45 seconds. The time to beat was set and the pressure was on.The always fast Jill Henselwood (CAN) thrives under pressure situations. Riding her Dutch Warmblood gelding Black Ice she was speedy, clearing the course in 44.04 seconds. Fast and clear, a suit Rich Fellers would follow.Fellers and Flexible came into the ring last, having had the opportunity to watch four go ahead of them they knew where to cut corners. They took every risk as they made their way around the ring, but it paid off for the pair as they came home in 42.70 seconds. “Flexible is a special horse and a real fighter,” said Fellers after the win. “You saw that tonight. He slipped early in the jump off and we had to recover and adjust our plans. He responded brilliantly over the rest of a very tricky course. He fought for the win against some excellent competition.” The competition was no match for the veteran pair who showed tonight why they are always a pair to be respected.GWL Realty Advisors Cup top 101- Rich Fellers USA Flexible2- Jill Henselwood CAN Black Ice3- John Anderson CAN Terrific4- Antonio Maurer MEX As Hyo Hugo5- Eric Lamaze CAN Lord Du Janlie6- Will Simpson USA Black Cherry7- Ian Millar CAN Redefin8- Beezie Madden USA Crème Brule9- Pedro Yrigoyen MEX GloConto10- Jonathan Asselin CAN Rayana ChiaraThe “Canada One” Tournament continues until Sunday.

Related According to the latest release from new sports nutrition player, Osmo Nutrition, conventional wisdom in the endurance sports drink world holds that it’s optimal to have both electrolytes and carbohydrates in the same formula, to essentially turn a fluid into a fuel. Launched today and founded on the philosophy of, ‘Hydration in your bottle, food in your pocket,’ Osmo Nutrition aims to not only challenge that assumption but to turn it on it’s head.The company is unveiling its initial, four powdered-drink product line in Sonoma County, California around the start of the Amgen Tour of California, which gets under way this weekend.‘Based on leading science’, Osmo Nutrition’s hydration and recovery products deliver proven performance benefits to help athletes perform and feel their best. All of Osmo’s products are based on the peer-reviewed scientific research of noted Exercise Physiologist and Nutrition Scientist Dr Stacy Sims, MSc, PhD.Osmo Nutrition’s product offering includes four powdered sports drink mixes that are optimized to work with an athlete’s body during four key phases of the exercise cycle: before, during, and after exercise, and before sleep.“Osmo’s products are designed to work with the body’s natural responses to exercise and adaptation,” said Dr Sims. “Specifically, each formula works at a particular point of the exercise/stress cycle and allows the body to minimize the stressors of exercise and maximize the repair.”While Dr Sims is Osmo’s Chief Research Officer, Osmo‘s Chief Executive Officer is Ben Capron, former Chief Brand Officer and Global Marketing Director for Specialized Bicycles.“Osmo exists to help athletes feel and perform their best,” said Capron. “The way we see it, if you have a body, you’re an athlete. So the opportunity is huge because the market is big and because proper hydration and recovery are the significant improvements to performance an athlete can make. Stacy’s established science enabled us to create the most effective hydration and recovery products on the market.”www.osmonutrition.com
SM East’s straight-out-of-the-movies Hail Mary victory over Olathe Northwest surely gave the team a full head of steam — and they’ll need every bit of that momentum heading in to tonight’s matchup against Olathe North, a Sunflower League blue blood program with eight state titles to its name.Sunflower Football Blog scribe Eli Underwood says the match is something of a toss up:This game for SM East is where the rubber hits the road. The Lancers have had about as exciting of a start to a season as I can remember from any team in a long time. Meanwhile, Olathe North has shown they’re a very good unit with probably as much pure athleticism as any team they’ll go up against. When you compare these two teams on paper it’s extremely challenging to determine who has the upper hand. Olathe North is more athletic, but SM East’s offense creates a ton of big plays. SM East has a tough defense that forces turnovers, but Olathe North has a much better offense than either of SM East’s previous opponents. I guess we’ll just have to find out on Friday.So what have the Lancers done to get stoked? Watched Brian Libeer’s latest motivation video, for one:The game starts at 7 p.m. at the CBAC.
