The tournament was run as round robin in the men’s with AIT 1 & 2 both defeating GMIT.  AIT 1 & 2 faced off against each other in the final round robin game, with a winner takes all. Ivan Venter from GMIT was the men’s player of the day and received a Connacht Rugby jersey.

In the ladies tournament, NUIG and AIT played each other twice. NUIG proving a bit more experienced than the AIT out fit  but there was some very impressive showing from the AIT ladies; Giulia Bruno from AIT, being the women’s player of the day, received a Connacht Rugby jersey. 

Keeping up the international flavour with both our players of the day; Ivan Venter of South Africa and Giulia Bruno of Italy.

It proved to be a great day and thanks to all the colleges and their coaches that entered. A special thanks to AIT and Connacht Rugby for their valued support.

Also, a special thanks to Paul Jennings of Connacht Rugby for refereeing all the games.
