Young Munster through to the semi-final

Nenagh Ormond 15, Young Munster 32:
IT was a winning start for new coach Tony Mathison in Nenagh tonight with his side coasting to victory over the local Ormond in the quarter-final of the Limerick Charity Cup.
‘Munsters’ led 7-3 at half time but with their pack dominant, they turned on the style in a one-sided second period to add a further 25 points.

On the scoresheet for Young Munster were Darragh O’Neill, Alan Ross, Ger Slattery and Michael Vaughan, a try each; two conversions and two penalties by Paul Downes and a conversion from Wayne Murphy.

In their first game since returning to the black and amber colours, Darragh O’Neill (ex-Thomond) and Mark Doyle (who played with Nenagh last season) were outstanding and Young Munster will be hot favourites to reach the final when they entertain UL Bohemian in Tom Clifford Park next Tuesday night.

There is speculation that Old Crescent could well be providing the opposition in this year’s decider. It appears that Garryowen may not be able to fulfil the fixture (should they be awarded the first round game with Thomond) due to their bonding trip to Holland. More news on this when it comes to hand as well as the scorers from tonight’s game.
