Clonmel 0 Waterpark 26
a re-fixed game Waterpark travelled to Clonmel on Tuesday evening to
play their last game in the league stages of the Pan Munster
competition. On a heavy pitch both sides served up a very good game of
rugby. Waterpark were first on the score board with a try from No 8 Robbie Walsh
. Outhalf Alex Molloy
kicked the conversion. A mistake from the Waterpark back line gave
Clonmel good field position in the Waterpark 22. Only some strong
defence from forwards Rob Sheehan
and Ruairi O'Dwyer
prevented a certain try from the home side. Waterpark eventually
cleared their lines and made it to the half time break with their line
intact. The visitors upped their performance in the second period and
pinned Clonmel in their own half.
Full back Eoin McGrath
(pictured above) scored an excellent try when a Clonmel clearance failed to find touch. Dev Murphy
(pictured below) added the second try of the game after good work from both the forwards and backs. Winger Stephen Breen
crashed over with only minutes remaining on the clock to leave the final score 26 nil to the away side.

a game most likely to be played Saturday week.
