Munster U19s Kick Start Campaign

Munster U19s Kick Start Campaign

Munster U19s travelled to London yesterday, 11th August, to play their Irish Exile counterparts in a match friendly ahead of their Interprovincial campaign.

A squad of 23 players travelled in what was the team’s first challenge game of the season finishing with the Exiles coming out on top 38-26.

The Exiles started the stronger with a penalty kick and try within the first 10 minutes however Munster started to offer some attacking threat as the game progressed. A well taken try by Sean Cremin kept them in touch in the first quarter of the game but a few individual errors allowed the Exiles push ahead with a 25 point lead at half time.

The 2nd half saw a resurgence from the Munster men as they started to impose themselves more physically on their opposition. Well taken tries from Gareth Molloy, Jack Boland and Aidan Moynihan gave Munster a stronger 2nd half but a few errors late into the second half left the game out of their reach.

Munster U18 Clubs took on the Exiles U18 at the same venue ahead of the U19 fixture finishing up 15 a-piece. The Under 18's will travel to Sunbury on Tuesday, 13th August to take on a London Irish side in their second pre interprovincial friendly at 12.00pm.

Munster Rugby would like to thank the Irish Exiles and the Oratory School, Reading and in particular former Munster Player Tom Hennessy of the Oratory School for his kind hospitality and hosting of the game.
