Challenge Game Match Report by Cormac Liddy
Munster U20, 21
English Colleges, 19
The Anthony Foley coached Munster side got off to a great start in their game against a very strong English Colleges side at Dooradoyle yesterday.
Using the game as a preparation for next seasonâ00s under 20 championship Munster looked very impressive when they did all their scoring in the first half which had a delay when referee Darragh Kelly had to retire with a calf muscle injury.
Winger Craig Oâ00Hanlon scored the opening try and fullback Luke Oâ00Dea came into the threequarter line for the second half. Just before the interval scrumhalf Brian Slater had the third try and all three were converted by outhalf Cormac Flynn.
But the English Colleges, preparing for their games against their Welsh and Scottish counterparts upped their game in the second half.
Tries by replacements, Jamie Hearne and Alex Cuthbert, also a replacement, one of which Mike Ayrton converted brought them back into contention. Ayrton then had a try which he converted but the first conversion miss proved the difference between the sides.
