White-out at Dungannon. thumbnailDungannon's Stevenson Park rugby grounds.

BAD weather conditions saw the cancellation of all Dungannon fixtures on Saturday, leaving even more games to be rearranged by Dungannon Fixture Secretary, Allan Buchanan.

The IRFU have decided that the Dungannon v Navan game will now be played on 17th March (ko 12.30pm).

The postponed Forster Cup semi-final between the Thirds and Fourths of Dungannon will be played this Friday night.

That means that the Dungannon Seconds v Queens Seconds (ko 12.30pm) will be the only home game on Saturday with the First XV travelling to Magherafelt to play Rainey OB in the Ulster League on Thursday night.

Andrew Lee is the leading try scorer at the moment, five tries ahead of Paul Armstrong and Johnny O'Neill, both of whom sit on 11 tries.

The top try scorers are as follows: Andrew Lee (16), Paul Armstrong (11), Johnny O'Neill (11), Matthew Montgomery (10), Tony O'Hagan (8).

Most successful team is the Thirds, who lead their league section by five points with two games in hand.

Team manager, Jonny Wright is confident his side can go all the way. He also has his eye on a place in the Forster Cup final, provided he can overcome Tony O'Hagan's spirited Fourths!
