Rockwell College v Christian Brothers College
Clonmel RFC, 3pm
The semi finals of the Avonmore Milk Munster School Junior Cup, which is the premier under 15 s schools competition in the province, take place this week. Four teams have come through three rounds of quarter finals to reach this stage. The revitalised format is a new departure for the competition, which ensured that the last eight schools in the competition played at least two matches in three rounds of quarter finals, rather than a straight knock out to decide the semi final line up.
First up is the all Limerick clash between St. Munchin s College and Crescent College Comprehensive on Tuesday in Thomond Park. St. Munchin s College have had a clear run in the competition this year, defeating Castletroy College 14-3 in their opening game, and claiming a 6-0 victory over Christian Brothers College in the second round. Crescent had a comprehensive 25-10 victory over last year s champions Ard Scoil Ris, but found themselves on the losing end of an 8-3 score line to Rockwell College in the second round. The loss ensured they had to play a third round game, where they booked their semi final place with a 10-3 win over Castletroy College.
Rockwell College and Christian Brothers College will contest the second semi final in Clonmel RFC on Wednesday. Rockwell College also won their first two quarter final games, claiming a narrow 15-14 win over Presentation Brothers College in their opening game and defeating Crescent College in the second round. Christian Brothers College got the ideal start to their campaign, defeating Glenstal Abbey School 29-10 but suffering a setback in the second round when they went down to St. Munchin s. The loss meant they had to play a third round game to stay in the competition, and their 22-10 victory over local rivals Presentation Brothers College secured their place in the final.
