Pan Munster U18

Clonmel 0 Waterpark 26

In 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.

Team: T Swift, J Jephson , D,O’Keffee, R Sheehan, J Walsh , R O'Dwyer, R Walsh, J Nolan, M Smyth, A Molloy, L Muigllan, D Hogan, J Dodd, M Daly E McGrath. Subs: C Horan, J Walsh, A Johnson, D Murphy, J O’Regan, S. Breen, C Hogan and M Kelly.

It’s yet to be confirmed but Waterpark will now face the runners up, Kinsale, in section two in the quarter-finals. Waterpark will have home advantage in a game most likely to be played Saturday week.
