Report

Cork Admirals 2nds won the Christy Farrell Memorial Tournament on 2nd September 2007, held in Edenderry Rugby Club, Co. Offaly. They beat the Edenderry Soldiers 26-0 in the opening game and then defeated Dublin dragons 2nds 42-0. They were scheduled to take part in a third match against the Tallaght Outlaws 2nds but a combination of a serious injury to a player and the torrential rain making the playing surface unsafe led to the rest of the tournament being cancelled and the Admirals declared winners.

There was a second DV8s Charity Tournament in Carrickfergus on the16 September, with four Northern teams – Belfast Bulls 2nds, Belfast Trojans 2nds, Carrickfergus Knights 2nds and Craigavon Cowboys – taking part. The Belfast Trojans won all three matches, in what was the Craigavon cowboys last DV8 Blitz before making the step up to the full 11-a-side Irish American Football League in 2008.
