    A large crowd were at the RSC Sunday to cheer on the Waterford Wolves as they took on the Cork Admirals in a 2pm KO. While the sun shone brightly over head unfortunately lady luck did not shine on the wolves as the admirals were first to strike following confusion in the special teams unit. Under the guidance of Steve Hayes QB of the admirals, they soon managed to establish a strong passing game. Wolves did however get on the board following good work by Franklin Tchiofo to give 6 points to the Waterford side. Final score at the RSC Waterford Wolves 6 Cork Admirals 33. Next home game 19 April V Dundalk Mavericks. Podcast of Game here: http://opentemposss.podbean.com/e/cork-admirals-waterford-wolves-iafl-conference-1-22315/

Please note this is the 3rd of only 4 home games so second last chance to cheer the lads on. ‪#‎youjustcantbeatliveamericanfootball

    Waterford Wolves and their fans travelled the long road to Mullingar Sunday to take on the Minotaurs. Wolves got off to bright start following a brilliant rushing TD by Ryan Byrne and the extra point by Mark Dunphy . They soon followed that up by good work by Brian Sullivan for another rushing TD , the extra point attempt was blocked to leave Wolves leading 13/0. Some good play by the minotaurs QB lead to a converted TD. Going into the half the Wolves lead 13/7. As the game went on the Mullingar outfit started to figure it out more, putting the Wolves defense under severe strain. Following good work by Lee Butler the Waterford Lads held out for the W and go 2/2 for the season. Let's go Wolves.

    The 3/2 Wolves travelled to Mahon outside Cork to take on the undefeated 5/0 admirals more in hope than expectation last Sunday. The weather was bright and sunny but that was as good as it got for the Waterford outfit .
    The Admirals QB was in electric form and two early TD's meant the wolves were on the back foot straight away. The admirals continued to have succes through the air leading to a 32/0 HT SCORE. The wolves defence improved in the second half as the Admirals tried to run the ball instead of throwing it. Some good possessions followed for the Wolves put they couldn't get the breakthrough the improved performance deserved . The Admirals began to assert themselves later in the game and this time managed to run the ball into the end zone. Final score Admirals 45 / Wolves 0. Next up Sunday week ,wolves last game at home to the Tyrone Titans.

    Im not surprised they got beat so badly......they were on the piss out in Tramore the night before :D Funny fellas, I guess my Go Wolves shout put them off their game and not the copious amount of alcohol they consumed :P

    The Wolves and their loyal legions of fans made the long trip to Dundalk last Sunday to take on the Mavericks knowing that win and they would be going to the playoffs . The Mavericks had the best defence in the league and points were going to be at a premium .And that's how it turned out under leaden skies the wolves offence struggled to break down a resilant Dundalk outfit . No score at half time , during which the weather deteriorated and thunder and lighting forced the teams off for over a hour . After the resumption the wolves offence eventually got going . A field goal attempt was then converted by Mark Dunphy to give the Waterford outfit a 3/0 lead. Late in the game the Mavericks had a FG attempt which went wide left . Final score wolves 3 mavericks 0. Wolves end their regular season with a 5/3 record and are on to the playoffs where they will be away in Tyrone or Navan.

    Now that the NFL season is but a distant memory, we move on from that unforgettable Super Bowl and concentrate on the local scene with the Waterford Wolves, front and centre. This Sunday 2pm the RSC Waterford is the place to be as Wolves take on the Cork Admirals in their first iafl 1 game of the season on the back pitch to the right of new stand. A huge crowd is expected to turn out to roar on the wolves against what promises to be a tough opponent from Cork. The forecast is good so get out and support your local American Football Heroes, while your out there,say hello to those charming men from Open Tempo Sport who will be broadcasting the game live online via their Open Tempo Sports App.Lets go Wolves,Lets go.
    I tried watching the Superbowl once. Watching a bowl of soup would have been more interesting. What is exciting about a sport where everyone dresses up like Michelin men, and takes a break for ads every five minutes? I hope the live game is a bit better than that.

    It's a strange game alright. Never could warm to it myself and have attended one of the Wolves games before so have seen it live.

    I think it is great though that it has gained such popularity in Waterford and the game I was at had a very good following.

    Seems really well organised too so hopefully it will continue to grow in Waterford.

    Good grief a conversation in the Wolves Thread. A lot of the problems stem from the fact that most of us were brought up under the influence of the likes of soccer and Gaa. It can be hard sometimes to think that's all there is out there . I myself like many sports many of those are so called minority ones but American Football is probably my favourite . It can be difficult to get Irish people to go to games here but Waterford Wolves get more fans than majority of any teams in Ireland. I recommend people to try to find out more about how the game is played, and come out to the RSC next year to see them play .

    Not sure if you could term it a conversation!

    As I said, from the outside all I see is Michelin men running around and stopping every five minutes. It seems really slow moving and boring compared to other field sports. Especially compared to rugby...

    But whatever rocks your boat...

    Good news for Waterford Wolves fans with Meath Bulldogs beating Tyrone Titans today , and thanks to a over complicated way of deciding how to sort out tied teams , Wolves finish second in their division so have a home playoff game next Sunday 2pm in RSC against the Meath Bulldogs . Please come out and support them.

    The live games are better. Problem with 'Merica is everything is money orientated. Especially the Superbowl. With the live games, the only time it stops (like on TV) is for the half time break. Other than that, it's play after play. It does have a very start/stop feel to it, but so does Rugby. Head down to the next game and see. Also no harm in youtubing a quick intro to American Football video.
