Munster Rugby and IRFU Referee Department have just completed their very successful joint venture to find the next generation of referees in schools within the Limerick area.
Rockwell College 33, St. Munchin’s College 13.
Beaten finalists for the past two seasons Rockwell gave notice that they will be there abouts at the closing stages of this competition after an impressive performance at Clanwilliam Park.
Rockwell opened the scoring with a try from Luke Cahill after twelve minutes which Brian Hock converted. Three minutes later Paul Curtin scored a try for Munchin’s.
Hock was off target with two penalty attempts but converted a try by Cian O’Donnell after excellent work by Cahill setup the try. Munchin’s stayed in touch with a second try just before half time by prop Dan Goggin.
McGillicuddy extended Rockwell’s lead with a try minutes into the second half. Ben Nugent kicked a penalty for Munchin’s before play was held up for some time, due to an injury to a Rockwell player. When play resumed Cahill scored his second try and Aidan O’Sullivan scored a fifth try for Rockwell and Hock converted both.
