Toon chasing promotion with unbeaten run thumbnailNathanial Steele will be looking to add to his try count this weekend against Virginia RFC after impressing against Belfast High School Former Pupils in the side’s last league game.

BALLYMONEY Rugby Club's First XV manager Jonny Hanna is confident his players have what it takes to go the entire season unbeaten in the league. Hanna's bold prediction followed his side's eleventh consecutive victory which came at home on Saturday against Belfast High School Former Pupils.

They face a tricky tie away to County Cavan outfit Virginia this Saturday before hosting second-placed PSNI at Kilraughts Road on New Year's eve.
