Rebels Look to Bounce Back Against Old Foes

The Dublin Rebels take to the road again for the second time in two weeks to open the 2019 season.

After a tough 1 point loss on opening weekend, the Rebels look to bounce back against old foes the Belfast (formerly Carrickfergus) Knights.

Head Coach Ross McCooey had this to say,”Adversity is what any good football program wants, what they seek out. Facing adversity and responding in the right way lays the foundations for long term successes, and after a frustrating opening day loss, a quick turnaround game 2 away, to an always tough Belfast Knights team, awaits the Rebels. The whole organisation knows very correctable errors were our undoing in game 1, and every player in a rebels jersey is determined to respond in the right way and continue building something special.”

Kick off on Sunday March 31st is 2pm in Shaws Bridge,Belfast.
