Trim Bulldogs had a more successful second season in the DV8 Development League, winning their first matches (20-0 & 6-0 against the Dublin Dragons 2nds and 21-14 against Tullamore Phoenix 2nds) although they would have been disappointed to have lost two close matches against neighbours and rivals Drogheda Lightning.
