Larne RFC recorded their first win in the Ulster Rugby Championship this season with a 15 – 20 victory away to Ulster University Coleraine on Saturday afternoon.

It was definitely a game of two halves as Larne raced to a 17 – 0 lead thanks to tries from Ryan McAllister, Ryan Garrett and Jacob Swan, with Garrett converting one.

The teams turned round with Larne leading 3 – 17 after UUC’s Adam Johnston landed a late penalty.

The second half was all UUC with Neil Stewart and Hayder Maxwell both crossing, Johnston converting one.

Larne landed a penalty in between the UUC tries and despite the students best efforts the “Larne Boys” held on to record a 15 – 20 win. #MHALL
