Letterkenny improving but not there yet.
By Letterkenny Rugby
Strong start falls away in disappointing 2nd half
In an almost complete opposite pattern to last week’s performance, Letterkenny were out of the trap early against Holywood and raced to a 17-5 lead at half time. Superb skills - cross field kick by out half Peter Scott, resulted in great try by winger Daragh McConnell. Not be denied on the other wing John Anthony McFadden went in for a score also converted by Peter Scott. Half time 17-5.
Unfortunately Letterkenny slipped badly in the second half with a combination of defensive lapses letting Holywood back into the game to finally win by 17-29.
Letterkenny have shown they can play and score good tries in both games, but defence has let them down at crucial times. This can be put right, but will require a performance for 80 mins and not just for a half. Both these matches were winnable, and there is still great optimism in the players and coaches and management that this will click very soon.
