Munster Schools Miss Out on Interpro Titles
7th October 2009 By Munster Rugby
The Munster U18s secured the win against Leinster today but were not successful in winning the Schools U18s Interprovincial championship. The Munster Schools U19s were also unsuccessful in winning their campaign.
The Munster Schools U18s defeated Leinster 21-16 earlier today, but unfortunately it was not enough for the U18s to stake a claim on the Interprovincial title, losing out to a superior Leinster points difference.
Munster tries came from Eoin Crosse and Paul Curtis, and J.J. Hanrahan kicked 1 conversion and 3 penalties.
The U19s kicked off at 2.30pm and Munster were down 16-3 at halftime with the penalty taken by Jack Murray. Munster went on to score a late try by Keith McManus but Leinster had already done enough, winning the Interprovincial Championship on a 19-8 scoreline.
The "Tim West Memorial Trophy" remains with Leinster.
