Munster A too good for Leinster A

Munster A too good for Leinster A

Heineken Cup winner Anthony Horgan and hooker Denis Fogarty struck for two tries apiece in the Munster reserve side’s resounding win over their Leinster equivalents at Donnybrook yesterday.

Leinster A 13 Munster A 33

This had all the hallmarks of a game between two sets of players in dire need of meaningful game time to sharpen their skills.

The Munster men made the most of dreadful Leinster handling to strike through the sharp instincts of Horgan and the close-in driving of Fogarty with Jeremy Manning kicking 13 points.
