Young Munster climb to second in league table

November 7, 2018

It was a closely fought encounter at Clifford Park which we led 6-3 at the half-time break thanks to a penalty from Brian Haugh and drop goal from outhalf Mike Prendergast.

On the 55th minute, Prendergast got the ball to Mark Doyle who touched down over the line for the home side’s only try of the game.

Given Young Munster’s defensive record in the league so far this season, the side will be disappointed to have conceded a late intercept try to Dolphin as Miah Cronin sprinted in to secure Dolphin’s losing bonus point.

Nonetheless a victory was what the day required to keep us in the running, and with four points secured, the team will be thinking about the game v Clontarf in Dublin this Saturday.

It’s all to play for with us ten points behind league leader’s Lansdowne but with a game in hand which will be the return visit to Dolphin next month. Although a game in hand isn’t worth much unless it’s a win… Mike Prendergast will want to keep the pressure on Lansdowne now and keep us in the hunt till the very end.

Final score: Young Munster 13 Dolphin 10
