U21s into final, good win for 3rds, 2nds unlucky

November 7, 2018

Elsewhere, on Saturday, our 3rd XV made it a double over UL Bohemians, running in three tries to pick up a 19-7 win at Annacotty in the Gleeson League. Kevin Moloney, Peter Payne Jnr, and Matthew Costelloe (home on a flying visit) all crossed the whitewash and Tommy Cronin notched two conversions.

In Coonagh, the Young Munster U21s beat Shannon 5-6 in the North Munster League semi-final play-off thanks to two Shane O’Leary penalties which takes them through to the final.

Our Second XV were beaten 13-16 at home on Sunday in Clifford Park by Garryowen. An Evan Mulcahy try plus two penalties and a conversion by Derry O’Connor weren’t enough to see us take the fixture which saw their outhalf put over a drop goal in the final ten to clinch the win.
