This week's Club Notes come from Cashel and Shannon Rugby Clubs.
Playing against the elements in the opening half, it was Munchin’s who opened the scoring with a try after three minutes when the ball was moved across the back line and Mark Long was on hand to score in the corner.
Christians were level within three minutes when after a series of drives at the try line, hooker Niall O’Leary touched down.
The Munchin’s pack controlled matters for long periods and it was no surprise when they went ahead with a penalty from Ryan Meagher.
The Cork side hit back immediately and took the lead on twenty one minutes with winger Darren Lee scoring in the corner and Thomas Quinlan expertly converted from the touch line for a 12-8 half time lead.
Christians were reduced to thirteen approaching half time but Munchin’s could not capitalise on their extra numerical strength.
Munchin’s only reply after the break was another penalty from Meagher and the nearest they came to another score was the last minute penalty miss.
