Just 6 teams this year. It was always going to be tough for us to win anything here with 3 very strong teams competing. Considering we were going in cold without much practice we put in a decent showing.

Group stage:
Started off well in the morning with a comfortable win over UCD2. Next 2 games we were comfortably beaten by the 2 Limerick teams. Final match of the day was against a mix of players from both UCD and UL. Probably should have won this one, ended in a draw, but a pretty exciting game nonetheless.

Galway 16 v 8 UCD2
Galway 3 v 25 UL 55's
Galway 5 v 15 Limerick Originals
Galway 9 v 9 UCD/UL Mix
Galway 3 v 16 UCD1

Team P W D L
Originals 5 4 0 1
UCD1 5 4 0 1
UL 55's 5 3 0 2
Galway 5 1 1 3
UCD2 5 1 0 4
UL/UCD 5 0 1 4

Knockout Round:
Finishing fourth in the group stage, still left us in the hunt for the cup in a bit of a complicated system. Anyways in glorious sunshine we lost to UL 55's for the second time, this meant we dropped into the Plate final. In the final we held or own for the first 4 or 5 innings, the Originals pulled away towards the end so the scoreline in this one is a little skewed and these guys are the All Ireland Champions after all.

UCD1 won the Cup and with it won the overall Intervarsity competition for the year.

Playoff : Galway 3 v 18 UL 55's

Plate Final: Galway 3 v 20 Limerick Originals
