Junior Rugby Roundup

Only one Munster side are through to the quarter finals of the AIB All Ireland Junior Cup.

Monivea repeated their All Ireland League play off of two seasons ago when they came from 10-5 down at half time to defeat Waterpark 32-15 on their home ground. A try by Gerry Miller and a conversion and penalty by Brendan Walsh gave the Suirsiders an early 10-0 lead and their only other score was a second half try from Shane Kavanagh.

Cashel defeated Tuam 15-7. The Connacht side missed several penalty chances. Colin Morrissey and Maximilliano Nannini scored tries for the Tipperary side. Pat O’Connor kicked a conversion and a penalty. Cashel will now have a home tie against Monivea in the quarter finals.

A weakened Kilfeacle side were no match for Boyne at Drogheda, where the Leinster side ran out 48-12 winners.

The Clonmel v Sligo tie was postponed due to the weather and is now likely to be refixed for next Saturday.

In the Second Division of the Munster Junior League both the top two sides lost for the first time. A try five minutes from time by John Duggan and converted by Peter Earlie earned Kanturk a 7-0 home win over leaders Old Christians.

Kinsale lost at home to Clanwilliam 23-11. The Tipperary side led 10-8 at half time. Ian Quinlan scored two tries for the visitors and Willie Dwyer kicked two conversions and three penalties. John O’Sullivan replied with a try for Kinsale and Jason Murphy kicked two penalties.

Muskerry’s 22-9 home win over Youghal sees them move into joint second place a point behind leaders Old Christians. William Healy, Darren O’Farrell and Lorcan Collins were try scorers for the Mid Cork side, Eoin Keohane kicked a conversion and a penalty and JJ Herlihy also added a conversion. Jonathon Ormond replied with three penalties for Youghal.

Bandon are now just two points behind the leaders after their 22-0 win over Ennis at the West Cork venue.
James Lyons, Pat O’Donnell and Mark O’Driscoll scored tries for the winners and David Aherne kicked two conversions and a penalty.

In the other game Newport defeated St. Mary’s 11-3. Philip O’Brien kicked two penalties and Ray Ryan scored a try for the Tipperary side. Barry Gibbons replied with a penalty for the Corbally side.

The Galbally Newcastle West tie was postponed.

Only one game was played in Section A of the Third Division when a last minute try by Stuart Madden earned Presentation a 10-6 win over Corca Dhuibhne. Ger Clancy was the Limerick side’s other try scorer and Sean Collins kicked two penalties for the Kerry Gaeltacht side.

In Section B Fermoy lost their first game when Waterford City defeated them 16-10. Sean O’Mahony and Dale Ryan scored tries for Waterford and Aaron Foskin and Daniel Fell each kicked a penalty. Olan Crowley and Courtney Canning were try scorers for Fermoy and Joe Lee kicked a conversion.

Following their victory in the Martin O’Sullivan Cup Final last week, Carrick-on-Suir lost valuable ground in the league when they were beaten at home by Charleville 17-10. The North Cork side were 17-7 ahead at half time with tries from James Leahy and John Hayes. Frank Holly converted both and also added a penalty. The home side were awarded a penalty try which Peter Steele converted. The only score after the break was a penalty by Ross Clery.

Mallow bounced back from that Cup Final defeat by Carrick’ last week to collect maximum points at home to Dungarvan on a 31-8 scoreline. Leonard Browne, Ian McSharry, Rory McSharry and Brian Morris were try scorers for Mallow and Morris kicked three penalties and a conversion.

A last minute penalty by Joe Larkin denied Shandon a share of the spoils at Moneygourney when they went down to Douglas 16-13. Shandon led 6-3 at half time with two penalties by Barry Leahy to one by Andy Larkin. Douglas had tries from Denis Kelleher and Dan O’Connor after the break and Shandon were awarded a penalty try which Leahy converted.

Only two games were played in the Northern Section of the Munster Seconds League. Thomond defeated Old Crescent at Rosbrien 28-9, while U.L. Bohemian defeated Shannon 17-12 at Annacotty.

In the Southern section all three games ended in big winning margins. Cork Constitution defeated Highfield 48-8 at Temple Hill. Dolphin travelled to Midleton and came away 45-0 winners, while Sunday’s Well defeated Clonakilty 36-0.
