This week's Club Notes come from Carrick-on-Suir RFC.
Crosshaven traveled to Waterpark and defeated the home side 21-10 a result that probably ends Waterpark’s hopes of a quick return to senior rugby. It was 11-10 to the visitors at half time with a try by Robbie Savage and two penalties by Cian McGovern. The home side had tries by Jay Kavanagh and Brendan Walsh. Darren O’Keeffe scored a second try for the visitors after the interval and McGovern kicked a conversion and penalty.
Defending champions Richmond picked up maximum points with a 41-0 home win over Clonmel and are now just two points behind Cashel. The home side led 17-0 at half time with tries from Gearoid Phelan and Darren Kavanagh and Mike Kelleher converted both and also added a penalty. Kavanagh added two further tries after the break and Ger McCarthy and Emmet Harty got one each with James McDermot kicking two conversions.
Clanwilliam lost a twelve point lead to end up sharing the spoils with Cobh Pirates on a 22-22 scoreline. The Tipperary side led 12-0 at half time with tries from David McCormack and John Redigan and a Richard Giles conversion.
