Dalriada coach warns against complacency
Thursday, 12 January 2017
DALRIADA still has work to do before they can be considered serious contenders for the Schools' Cup shield this season, according to their coach.
Rab Gregg's young charges demolished Larne at the weekend to set up a mouth-watering tie with Limavady Grammar in under a fortnight's time.
A number of players impressed away from home on Saturday, including Thomas Hunter who ran in four tries. Ewan Rodgers was also rampant for the Ballymoney side as were team-mates Paddy Elliott and Jacob Fleck who, between them, chalked up almost thirty points in the one-sided affair.
Gregg is refusing to get carried away by the result however, and acknowledges that Limavady will ask more questions of his side when they meet.
“We faced Limavady just before Christmas - and they beat us," Gregg told Chronicle Sport. "Of all the teams we could have been drawn against they wouldn't have been on my list to be honest. The only positive is that we now know what Limavady is about and we can prepare accordingly.
“Our preparations for the Larne game weren't fantastic - they could have been much better - but the guys delivered on the day and that's really all that matters. We were fairly confident we would progress to the next round and coming away with such a big result is another bonus for us.
