There were shocks in the Munster Junior Cup as Clanwilliam, Clonakilty, Clonmel and U.L. Bohemian booked their places in the semi finals.
Like last year, this initiative provided youths between the ages of 9-15, from a wide range of abilities and backgrounds with a fun and positive experience as well as enabling them to mix and build positive relationships with one another.
The main focus was to bring clubs and communities together; city wide, through positive opportunities such as this programme and it was clear from the day that this was a big step in the right direction.
Special thanks have to go to Presentation RFC for the use of their excellent facilities on the day. Also Munster Rugby would like to thank the students of the Southside Community Leadership Arts and Sports Programme. The students who have spent the last six months developing their knowledge of the game helped out on the day by supporting the referees to score each game.
Whilst the emphasis of the competition was on Fair play; not the winning, each team were scored on Conduct, Teamwork and Sportsmanship. Thanks must also go to all coaches, teachers and supervisors of their teams ensuring the day's success.
Kieran Ryan and Elaine O'Connor of the Limerick Regeneration Agency supported this programme. They were on hand to give out prizes, which included Munster Rabo Direct Pro12 tickets v Ulster, Special Tour Visit to Thomond Park and 15 winning Summer Camp places for the best behaved/dedicated players. Congratulations must go to the winning team Southside Garda project and runners up; Presentation RFC.
