Preview | Charity Cup And Junior Clubs Challenge Cup
10th May 2023 By Leonard Allen
As the season continues to wind down, the final round of the Junior Interprovincial Series, Junior Clubs Challenge Cup, and a handful of games in North Munster are down for decision over the coming days.
Munster will be looking to finish the Junior Interprovincial campaign on a winning note as they entertain Leinster at Waterford City RFC’s home ground in Kilbarry. Leinster with two wins from two will be hoping to regain the title.
On Thursday evening, Nenagh Ormond and Shannon lock horns at the North Tipperary venue in the Sporting Limerick Charity Cup decider. Shannon are bidding for their 18th triumph and their first since 2014, while Nenagh Ormond won the trophy for the only time to date in 2018. Shannon boosted by their win over Highfield last weekend to retain their Division 1A status will be confident of another victory.
Young Munster welcome Cork Constitution to Tom Clifford Park on Saturday for the Munster Senior Club’s League final.
In Charleville on Sunday, Munster League Champions Richmond go head to head with holders Newcastle West, as they contest the Munster Junior Clubs’ Challenge Cup decider. This game also doubles up as a Transfield Cup semi-final. The winners of this game will meet Old Crescent or Thomond in the Transfield Cup decider.
