    Who won this, today?

    Popped in for a few minutes and there was a decent crowd there. Sounded like a decent atmosphere and something worth going to see on a regular basis.

    Enough support to entertain a discussion. Also what's your definition of big ?

    Majority of the discussion on this thread was the same guy over and over again giving updates, so really it isn't popular enough to 'entertain' that big of a discussion.

    I don't see your point.... It's informative and somewhere for people to get information. Does it matter if its popular or how popular it is....

    It doesn't I suppose! I just thought there would be close to 0 support really for an American sport in Waterford.

    There is definitely support. I rambled up to a game one day and there was a nice crowd there !

    If people are enjoying it then fair play, I wasn't being a smart arse I just never really heard of people having interest in American football in Waterford. Any new sport that will keep people fit and busy is a good thing.

    Well you've met your first interested party :) The lack of sleep from watching on TV can be a bother tho lol

    Yeah I can understand the lack of sleep issue alright. I watch a lot of boxing and ufc both tend to be on in USA a lot which really sucks.

    Up to 30 American Football teams in Ireland . Already 3 looking to join this year. Officially fastest growing sport in Ireland . The fan base in Waterford is also one of the biggest in the country . Thousands of likes on Facebook , Twitter, and now on periscope . Coverage on local radio and in newspapers . Playing also on the best pitch in Ireland at the RSC . They have come a long way in a short period of time . The class ceiling is being truly broken by this side in terms of so called minority sport status .

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,002 ✭✭✭ decies


    Despite a competitive first half in which the Wolves were right in the game , the Cork Admirals took control of this contest in the second half and bet the Wolves 30 points to 3. Thanks to all those who came out in the cold spring day .


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,002 ✭✭✭ decies


    Wolves take the long trip to Mullingar to take on the Minotaurs this Sunday at 2pm in what promises to be a very tight affair .


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,002 ✭✭✭ decies


    Wolves made the long trip to Westmeath in lashing rain , hoping for a good result . In very wet underfoot conditions they battled hard and eventually prevailed to win 11/9 . Touchdown from David Kelly and FG and 2 point conversion from Kevin Butler.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,002 ✭✭✭ decies


    Wolves are home this Sunday the 24th at the RSC KO 2pm against the Westmeath Minotaurs . Please support your local American Football team .


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,002 ✭✭✭ decies


    In a cold RSC the away team the Minotaurs got off to a flying start and soon went two touchdowns ahead . In what turned out to be a very physical encounter two Minotaurs got ejected . Following pressure in the away teams end zone Kevin Barry managed to get hold of the ball and get a TD for the wolves . 12/6 to Minotaurs . David kelly added a FG for the home team . And was unfortunate not to get his hands on a well thrown ball by Ryan Byrne . Final score Wolves 9 Minotaurs 12. Thanks to all who came out .
