The Ulster bank division 2A league resumes on Saturday next and will see the Connaught side Galwegians come to Cashel in what promises to be a big fixture for the home side. Local support for these games are always vital and very welcomed!
Munster Senior Seconds League: Cashel 31 UCC 10
Cashel had shipped three heavy defeats away from home in this competition to date and it was a relief to at last have a home game. Some key players were returning from injury and some who had not travelled to Cork were also available. The first half was a fairly balanced affair. After 10 minutes Eoin Laffan made a strong charge into the UCC 22 and from the resulting ruck Cashel was awarded a penalty which Darragh O’Brien converted. He followed up 8 minutes later with another penalty and as the play swung from end to end the forward exchanges were tough. The Cashel pack was more composed and had an edge in the scrum and lineout. Cashel conceded a try on the half hour but UCC were called back by the touch judge and the try was disallowed.
