Match Report for

Boston Irish Wolfhounds (2nd) vs. Portland (2nd)
09 September 2017

Location: Canton, MA. ICC

SCORE
Boston Irish Wolfhounds: 43    Portland: 10


Boston Irish 2 nd XVs v Portland 2 nd XVs was a NERFU Division 2 Club Mens 2 nd XVs match played after their League match. With Portland playing most of the 1 st XV players, there was a request for 30 minute halves, with the second half being a little shorter.

Boston Irish had a number of players who did not participate in the 1 st XVs match and who were fired up to be playing their own match. This aspect show as both halves were controlled by Boston Irish. Tries were scored at the 4th , 7th , and 11th minutes. Portland put in their lone try of the half at the 26th minute. 17-5 Half.

Although shorter, Boston Irish made the best of it scoring tries at the 5th , 8th , 11th , and at Full Time. Portland scored its lone try of the half at the 19th minute. 43-10 Full.

There was a serious pelvis/hip injury to a wolfounds player 4 minutes in. Emergency services were called and the game was paused for approximately 20-30 minutes. During the incident, beer was brought onto the field by the wolfhounds facility manager. I attempted to request he remove the alcohol from the playing area and was rudely dismissed. As my focus was ensuring the injured player was safe and treated in a timely manner, I did not find it appropriate at the time to pursue the matter further.
