Richmond 29, Muskerry 13: Played in Richmond Park yesterday, the home side got their division one challenge up and running with a bonus point win over their County Cork visitors. It was 12-6 to the home side at the break but they had to deal with a Muskerry resurgence in the early stages of the second period.

Mike Kelliher scored an early try for Richmond with Jonathan Tully getting a brace and a fourth from Brian Mullins. Wayne Murphy chipped in with three conversions and a penalty.

Clonmel 39, Galbally 3: Galbally’s only score was a penalty from Jack O’Mullane with the Tipperary boys proving too strong for their neighbours. This game was held up for 40 minutes because of a leg injury to one of the Clonmel. We wish him a speedy and full recovery.

Clonmel ran the ball well with their backline showing tremendous pace and cohesion and they should prove to be a force in the battle for this title.
