Rugby: Medallion Shield Semi-Final Report

The Royal Belfast Academical Institution


On Saturday the Medallion played MCB in the semi final of the Medallion Shield and following a dominant second half  performance came away as deserving 24—5 winners to book a place in the Final.

Having not been able to beat MCB in either of their two previous matches this season or having never beaten them in the previous three years the boys certainly picked the right day to turn the tide.

The first half was a tight affair which MCB took the lead after twenty minutes through a maul score. However, our boys hit straight back with a try to captain Angus Adair. In the second half tries to Jack Magee, Angus again and then Robin McIllveen near the end were just reward for a comprehensive display.

The final is a repeat of last years final against Wallace to be played on Tuesday March 8th at Kingspan stadium.
