The 3rd XV faced the stiff challenge of unbeaten league leaders Ards 3s at Orangefield Park.
They repelled a strong start by an experienced Ards side and took an early lead they were never to lose despite some hairy moments late in the game. It was a terrific game of rugby with both sides prepared to attack and move the ball at every opportunity. Grosvenor’s tries game from backs Johnston (2), Swift and Thompson with the remaining points coming from the boot of Allen. Final score 32-29.
