J1 V Highfield RFC
Score: 16 - 22 (Con score given first)
Venue: Templehill
Date: 01/05/2017
Referee: E.O’Shea MAR
Report:

Highfield defeated Cork Constitution in the Munster Seconds League play-off match at Templehill on Monday evening.

 

Constitution had the better of the first forty minutes to lead 13-7 at the interval. Jamie Murphy kicked two penalties in a scrappy first 20 minutes to put Constitution 6-0 ahead. And they increased their advantage with a try by Glen Stokes in the 33rd minute, following a line-out, which Murphy converted for 13-0.

 

However, Highfield scored just before the break, when they kicked a penalty to the corner, and drove over for the try from the ensuing line-out, with hooker Diarmuid O’Sullivan touching down. Kieran Duggan kicked the conversion for 13-7 at the break.

 

A penalty by Duggan after 56 minutes closed the gap to 13-10, and Highfield went ahead with a try four minutes later, when left wing John McLaughlin got over in the corner, from a blind-side move initiated by No.8 George French. The conversion was unsuccessful, but Highfield led 13-15.

 

Constitution pressed again, but knocked on over the line in the 63rd minute, and another drive for the line in the 68th minute only yielded a penalty, however converted by Murphy for the lead at 16-15.

 

But, the game was decided in the final minutes, when Highfield hooker Conor Forde got over from a maul on the line, and full back Kieran Duggan added the extras.

J1 V Clanwilliam
Score: 25 - 26 (Con score given first)
Venue: Templehill
Date: 12/03/2017
Referee: P.Sheehan MAR
Report:

Clanwilliam won a close Munster Junior Cup encounter at Templehill on Sunday afternoon, over a rather subdued home side. Despite scoring four tries, they conceded rather easy penalties to give the visitors the edge on the scoreboard.

 

Clanwilliam settled better than the home side, and two penalties by Niall Leahy had them in control, before Jack O’Dwyer scored the opening try on 31 minutes, which Leahy converted for 0-13. 

 

Constitution hit back before the break. No.8 John O’Callaghan got in for a try at the posts in the 36th minute, for Lacey to add the conversion. And, Leahy and Lacey exchanged penalties in the minutes before the break, to leave the visitors in the lead at 10-16.

 

Constitution re-started in more determined manner with a smart try by Luke Duffy in the 43rd minute; but, just as quick, Dwyer scored at the other end, and converted himself for 15-23.

 

A quick delivery by Billy Pope in the 61st minute, gave Harry Murphy a clear run to the line. The conversion was missed, but the gap was down to three points: 20-23.

 

Then in the 70th minute, a break-out from the 22-metre area brought play to the Clanwilliam line; and from a scrum, Jamie Murphy got in for a try. The conversion was missed, but the home side led 25-23 inside the final 10 minutes. 

 

However, after Constitution won a good line out in mid-field, they conceded a penalty in the 76th minute, which Leahy converted, for the narrowest of wins.

J1 V Crosshaven
Score: 30 - 20 (Con score given first)
Venue: Templehill
Date: 19/02/2017

Report:

Cork Constitution followed up their first round victory over Muskerry, with victory over Cosshaven in their third round Munster Junior Cup match at Templehill on Sunday. Crosshaven, who defeated Clonakilty 24-18 in the first round, gave the home side a good test, and contained them well to 13-13 in the first half.

 

Barry Galvin gave the home side a fifth minute lead with an unconverted try in the right corner from a Luke Duffy break. However, two penalties by Ian Smith had Crosshaven in front by the 12th minute. And a try by Michael Lynch, converted by Smith in the 27th minute increased Crosshaven’s belief at 5-13, after Constitution had lost full-back Billy Pope to the sin-bin for a high tackle. However, Constitution fought back with a try by Vincent O’Brien in the 35th minute, and a penalty just on half time by Jamie Murphy, tied the scores at 13 points each.

 

Constitution opened the second period with a classy try by Luke Duffy, from a line-out at half-way, with the ball going smoothly through the hands, and Murphy’s conversion was good for 20-13. Second-row Sean O’Leary followed up immediately with a try from a 22 metre line-out, again converted by Murphy for 27-13. The standard of play deteriorated subsequently, with yellow/red cards and mediocre play from both sides. A Murphy penalty in the 70th minute closed Constitution’s account, while a 76th minute try and conversion took the bare look from Crosshaven’s.

In the 4th round, Constitution will be home to the winners of Cobh Pirates / Clanwilliam on 12th March
