BUCCANEERS U-20’s are away to Navan in the JP Fanagan Leinster League Premier Division 2 on Sunday with the action at Balreask getting under way at 2.30 p.m. Navan are currently fifth on the league table but have enjoyed two big wins in their most recent outings so will be full of confidence. It looks like being a fairly even and keenly contested tussle as the sides were well-matched when Buccs edged an 18-17 home win in the opening round of the league. The midlanders were not at their slickest at Corinthians last Sunday but still had the composure and nous to overcome the Galway side. The Pirates should be a lot sharper as a result of that outing and, if they are disciplined and focussed, can forge an away victory.
BUCCANEERS J2’s, like the U-20’s, are on the road for a second successive week with a trip to Portumna for a Connacht Junior 2 League clash on Sunday. The Co. Galway club are comfortably placed in mid-table but Buccs will be encouraged by their narrow loss last weekend at Claremorris. If they improve on that performance they will make life difficult for the hosts. Kick off is 2.30 p.m.
