Munster Senior Cup - Garryowen Turn Over Cashel

Garryowen came to Cashel on Saturday in determined mood with the sole aim of progressing in the Munster Senior Cup. They are one of the aristocrats of Irish Rugby with a wonderful record in the Munster Senior Cup. It was always going to be a tough day for Cashel but when the dust settled the general feeling was that with a little more composure and a fifty fifty break in the decisions the result may have been closer. Garryowen were on top form the start and relied largely on their maul. However the Cashel defence was strong and Garryowen did not take the lead until the the 20th minute when they kicked a penalty. One of the turning points took place 5 minutes later as the Garryowen out half lofted a “Garryowen” into the Cashel 22. Pat O’Connor jumped high for the ball but it appeared to be knocked on by a Garryowen hand. The referee indicated a scrum to Garryowen , they played advantage and scored a converted try under the posts. It was a difficult day for kickers due to a strong wind and both sides missed a penalty before half time. The Garryowen out half kicked cleverly to the corners. Half Time score Cashel 0 Garryowen 10.
