The Munster Association of Referees were on hand to officiate proceedings, which saw an energetic brand of expansive rugby throughout the day. With extra bonus points offered for extra tries scored, all teams expressed themselves effectively to create a great a display of high tempo running rugby.
The host school PBC met Limerick school Ard Scoil Ris in the final of the 'A & B' school section and following an entertaining game of free flowing rugby narrowly came out on top. Colaiste Phobal Beanntrai defeated an impressive Pobalscoil Na Trionoide, Youghal in another very entertaining contest to claim the 'C' school top prize.
Munster Rugby Head Coach Rob Penney was on hand to present prizes and complimented all teams for their participation in what was a very exciting and highly competitive tournament.
Speaking on behalf of Laya Healthcare, Lorraine Walsh, Marketing Manager said "We are extremely happy to be associated with Munster Rugby and Presentation Brothers College and are privileged to support this innovative fundraising event."
"Laya Healthcare are delighted to be in a position to offer ongoing support to SHINE and are big advocates of the fantastic programmes they offer for children and adolescents with autism."
