Munster Senior Cup 2nd Round
Cork Constitution v Highfield
7.30pm Friday 16th November 2018
Cork Constitution meet Highfield in the Munster Senior Cup 2nd Round at Templehill on Friday evening.
Cork Constitution scored the narrowest of victories over University College at Templehill in the 1st Round on 22nd September. On that occasion, the home side ran up a 21-5 advantage in the first forty minutes, but College led 24-26 with just two minutes remaining, and only a last ditch attack that yielded a penalty, enabled Constitution to take the spoils.
Since then Constitution have played five AIL Division 1 fixtures, defeating Shannon, UCC, Dublin University and Garryowen, but lost to Lansdowne on the plastic all-weather pitch at Lansdowne. Constitution are second in the table, a point behind Lansdowne.
Meanwhile, Highfield are third in Division 2A, two points behind leaders Navan, and level with Cashel; but, with a game in hand on the others, after wins over UL-Bohemian, Cashel, Dolphin, Old Crescent and Navan; with one loss at home to Queen’s University.
In the Munster Cup, Highfield defeated Nenagh Ormond 34-10 in the first round at home; Old Crescent 29-24 in Limerick and Cashel 17-12 in Cashel, in Rounds 2 & 3.
As per normal, all members are required to pay entry fee, as it is a Munster Branch fixture.
