Disappointing day in Clontarf

November 7, 2018

‘Tarf took an early lead courtesy of winger Michael McGrath and Richie Lane added a penalty to take them 8-0 ahead. Young Munster outhalf Shane O’Leary, on his first senior start, got a try for the visitors, which proved to be our only score of the first half.
The Dublin side added on another penalty and two further tries by Lane and Adrian D’Arcy to take the home side in 21-5 ahead at the break.
Despite having an extra man for 10 minutes when the ref had shown his yellow card to Clontarf player McGrath, Young Munster failed to capitalize and it was the Dublin side who scored next, as their centre Killian Lett recorded a bonus point score to jubilant home support.
Young Munster did rally for a late consolation try by Colin Liston, however Clontarf had the final say with an intercepted pass by Matt D’Arcy was passed to McGrath to touch down before the final whistle.

Final score: Clontarf 35 – Young Munster 10

Young Munster travel to Dublin again next weekend, this time to face league leaders Lansdowne in the Aviva Stadium at 2.30pm.
