Big game for Richmond: ‘Munsters’ to advance in cup

ANOTHER busy week-end for local clubs as the Junior Rugby season faces the business end. Young Munster will be sure to advance in the Bank of Ireland Munster Junior Cup. The holders are paired with Mallow and anything but a home win is unlikely. Also in cup action Garryowen face a tricky fixture when they travel to Nenagh. The Tipperary club is enjoying a successful season and the light blues will have to be on their best form if they are to keep interest in this competition.
Richmond face an important test when they travel to play Old Christians. They need to win their remaining games to win the title and can’t afford any slip-ups over the next few weeks. Also in the Munster Junior League Section A, Thomond host Newcastle West (pictured) in Liam Fitzgerald Park while Abbeyfeale are away to Clonakilty. In the Munster Junior Clubs’ Shield semi-final Galbally/Mitchelstown are away to Cobh Pirates.
