Wallace’s Medallion XV made it through to the quarter final of the Medallion Shield after a convincing 36-5 replay victory over Down HS last Thursday after the teams drew 5-5 on the previous Saturday.

They will now go to Rainey in the quarters.

Wallace began strongly and it was no surprise when Jonathan Waite powered over from close range following multiple phases involving forwards and backs.

Josh Cardosi scampered over for the second try which was converted by Conor Rankin. Down HS responded with a well taken try to leave the half time score 12-5.

Soon after, Dillon Sedge went over from close range and this was quickly followed by an outstanding try from Jack Dillon who outpaced the defence to go over in the corner. Sedge got his second try of the game in the closing stages and captain Sam Cardosi capped a fine all round game with a try in the dying minutes. Conor Rankin kicked three conversions.
